            White Lead Works

Gentn	Mr Blackett received your letter of Yesterday the Contents of which rather surprises him as he is well convinced that the Lead he sold you on the 3d Octr last was to be paid for in Bills due at the end of Six Months from the time of Sale, and if you had referred to his letter of that date you could have had no doubt on the subject, a Copy of which you have on the other side.

	Mr C Blackett & Mr Hewitson purchased a Qty of Lead at the same time & have some time since paid for it by Bills due the 3d April and Mr B expects that you will do the same.

                                                         I am  Gentlemen etc    J.S
