Messrs Finlay Hodgson & Co  London				Oct 12th 1833

      I am in receipt of your fav[our] of the 8th & 9th inst. By referring to your Book in which the Stockton List were copied you will find the return for the month of Jany 1832 under date of the 1st Feb and that all the returns are dated the 1st of the following Month. The return for Nov I now send you which will complete your set.

      Mr Pattinson will go up next week and ascertain the exact stock of Lead the Duke of Cleveland has at his Mills, of which I will inform you on his return. If this turns out no more than I expect, with the great decrease at the Stockton Wharfs I think we may look for an immediate advance. Are the London Company acquainted with our decrease of Stock? I am advised of Messrs Walker Parker & Co payment of £4362 to Mr B[eaumont]s credit at Glyn & Co on the 3rd Oct. I have given Mr Keys Agents an Order for 70 Casks of Litharge which I expect we shall be able to deliver by the end of next week Messrs Bayley & Cos Payment of £6213 is carried to the Credit of their Acct.
