Messrs Cox Payser & Co


	I have duly recd you lres of the 6th & 8th inst. We have a good demand for our WB Ltharge at £14-10- per Ton and have sold none under that price. Our present price of Lead is £14 refined £13-10 comm in the proportion of 1/3 refined 2/3 common including 1/10 Slag. This  would bear us out in asking a higher price for Litharge.

We look for a further advance in Lead, knowing the last years produce to fall short of the consumption. Messrs Walkers & Co have purchased largely.
