Messrs Wm Thompson & Co					Newcastle Octr 5th1832



      I am favoured with your letter on 2nd Inst and beg to refer to mine of the 22nd Septr handing you invoice of 5000 frs of lead weighed off by direction of your agent Mr I Cookson, Four Hundred &Sixty seven pieces. Refined Lead of the above quantity are awaiting on our Wharf to our great Inconvenience. We have no account of your transaction with Mr Key and must therefor beg of you the loan of 436 p[iece]s Commn Lead as agreed upon with him. We have delivd a large quanty of Comn Lead of late without a comment on its quality.

      Our refined Lead of the same description as that delivd to Mrs Cookson has been highly approved of by three extensive white lead manufacturers here. 

					I am Sir your Obdt Servt

						Benj Johnson
