Sir	 Your Favor of the 26th inst came to my hands this day.  After I had sold Mr C Blackett a quantity of Comon Lead I came to a resolution not to dispose of any more for some Months, except small quantities for exportation at an advanced price, the stock of WB Lead is small at this season & the quantity this year will be much decreased on which account I certainly shall not make a Sale for some Months           I am Sir etc   J.E.B
