Messrs Finlay Hodgson & Co London						Sep 17th 1833

      I duly received your letter of the 14th inst advising the receipt of £127-17 from Messrs Locke & Co and Paym[en]t of the same to Mr B[eaumon]ts credit with Messrs Glyn & Co.

I have extended Messrs Locke Blackett & Co Purchae 2000 P[iece]s half Ref[ine]d half Com[mon] including 1/10 Slag at £14 and £14-10.

      We have 3000 p[iece]s Slag Lead at Blaydon unsold one half of < oh/w> is ref[ine]d Slag.

Mr Parker <taking>  Ordinary Ref[ine]d in 12 St[one] Pieces will enable us to deliver 7000 P[ieces] Common Lead by the end of Oct  after completing all our present sales.

      I have fav[oure]d Messrs Bayley & Co an amended Invoice agreeable to the Statement sent to you on 4th Inst explaining how the mistake had arisen. The Sale to Locke Blackett & Co was against my inclination at the Price but I found it <would> give great offence to refuse. I have not made any further Sales under £15. Walker Parker & Co have not taken a single piece of their last Purchase.
