Messrs Finlay Hodgson & Co						Jan[uar]y 23rd 1834

I duly received your letter of the 20th inst Messrs Grace & Freeman Statement of Ac[coun]t is correct, and I have given them credit for £4904.3 and £13.1.7 Discount- together the Bal[ance] of purchase of 2000 Pieces on the 24th June last. I also give them credit for £20-13-4 due to myself for shipping charges. I sh[oul]d wish this sum to be taken out of Mr B[eaumon]ts Ac[coun]t and I will request Batson & Co to debit themselves in £490-4-3 and pay over to me the £20-13-4. The Hudgate Co are asking £17 and I shall be glad to hear the London Co and yourself are doing the same. It is reported here that all the Lead – with the exception of the first shipments have been seized and Duty demanded upon it.
