Messrs Storr & Mortimer London						April 17th 1833 


I am in receipt of your letter addressed to Mr Backhouse and am much surprised to hear of my Lead been left in the silver. I will thank you to refine it, and as soon as you can, inform me of the result, which I trust will be more favourable than you anticipate. As we are making our annual large Lead Pays a payment to our Bank will be acceptable.
