Mr John E Blackett

Sir, In consequence of your last letter to Mr Wm Lee which I saw I request you will inform me whether the price of lead you quoted of £17.10 is on long credit as the last quotation from Hull was £16.10. 3 or 2 mo[nths] and truly it is in your power to serve me better than any of the merchants there.  From the connection of my own punctuality I expect you will serve me the most liberal terms & under this presumption.  I shall have the pleasure of ordering 40 or 50 tons this Spring for a tryal to be sent to my house at St. Petersburg and about April I shall be obliged to you for the state of your market.  I shall be in London next week my address is Newbroad Street No.7

Iam truly Sir your ob. Servt

      Arch'd Paris
