Mr Easterby, requests to know the lowest price Mr. Blackett wou'd charge for 500 or 600 Pieces of Common Lead for Exportation.

If Mr Blackett shou'd have none for sale, Mr E wou'd consider himself highly obliged in being informed, on what terms Mr. Blackett has sold similar quantities, & whether it would be agreable to him, to make an offer which Mr E may have an option in, for the delivery of 500 pieces in a Month or Six Weeks.       [The] Side  20th Mar. 1799

[Annotated at foot in JEBs hand:] Refused to sell or engage
