Dear Sir

      Mr Preston accepts your offer of 500 of WBLead half Refined and half Common at £14.10 - pay in 6Ms. and I am much surprized that I  have not had an Ansr. from Mr Locke to day, but I make no doubt of hearing from him to Morrow - the delay I hope will not be inconvenient or disagreable to You - 

If my Friends should wish to take an extra qty of Slag, perhaps you will have no objection to letting them have 1 or 200p[iece]s?

      Mr Walton has sold Mr Fishwick 6 or 700 of Refined at £14.10. - 6/ms.

      I have inclosed five Bills at a month in payment of the Balance due, being £2637.13.1- and am with best Respects to Mrs. Collingwood

                    Dear Sir Yr much obliged and obed Sert.

                                     Chrisr  Blackett

JE Blackett Esq.
