Messrs. Read Lucas & Reads					N.Castle 10th. April 1802



      Mr. Blackett has this Day received your Favour & observes you think the Piece fine Silver sent you charged too high.   The present high Price of Lead & the great Waste attending the Operation of refining rendered some Advance in the Price of fine Silver necessary, and not being advised of any Reduction in the Price of that Article in London, he charged it 6/5 ½ but has now altered that Price to 6s/5d p[er] Oz with which he hopes you will be perfectly satisfied. I am &c. T.C.
