I had the pleasure to receive your letter of the 15th yesterday advising the Payment of £560-3-7 to Mr Bts credit with Maltbys at Glynn & Co for a piece of fine silver weight 2151 Oz.

I Have this day sent by Jackson & Co Waggon a piece of fine Silver weighing 1483 Oz to your address at the Bullion office, which you will please to dispose of at the best price.

The statement of the quantity of ore at each mill shall be forwarded as soon as Mr B returns. 

I cannot learn that any sale has been made at Stockton beyond the 300 frs. The Hudgill Co have sold a small quantity at £14 the exact quantity I cannot learn Messrs Crawhalls being both from home.				BJ
