Messrs Finlay Hodgson & Co I have to acknowledge the rec[ei]pt of your two fav[our]rs of the 30th & 31st ult. And now hand you weight of two Pieces of fine Silver as above forwarded at the above dates, to your address as usual, by Jackson & co Waggon. I note your payment to W Bt credit with Batson & Co at Glyns & Co for the net Proceeds of a piece of fine silver amounting to £612-14s-6d. Messrs Cox & Payser & Co can have 30 or 40 Tons of Litharge in ten days from the time we are advised of their Purchase. We shall continue making and can therefore let them have 20 Tons by the end of next week. The shipping charges for Litharge are the same as for lead or nearly so viz 31 /- Per Keel of 70 casks each cask weighing about 6 Cwt. These are the lowest charges that are ever made and are subject to advance when the Keelmen are in full employ. We can at all times effect it on our best terms from the great quantity of Lead we are always shipping. I am glad Messrs Cox & Payser have declined to purchase Lead at present they will have to pay a higher price when they next apply. Yours truly BJ Nov 2nd 1833 PS Mr Batson has just handed me account of Mr W[ilia]m Parker Payment of £1646.7.10 ch/w I have carried to the credit of his acct.
