Messrs Read Lucas & Reads Sheffield Newcastle 20th September 1804 Gentlemen, In Mr Blackett’s Absence I have to acknowledge the Receipt of yours of the 15th Inst. covering 7 Bills amount £376-8-0 as you advise which Sum is placed to the Credit of your Account with Tho[ma]s R[ichar]d Beaumont Esq for fine Silver sent you. Mr Blackett observes the Price allowed for the piece last sent is much below his expectation, and when he assures you he had 5s/10d1/2 per Oz for a piece sent to London on the same day yours was forwarded for Sheffield he does not doubt you will allow him 1d per Oz more than you name on the piece abovementioned, making 5s/10d per Oz. I am etc. T. C.
