A Copy of a Letter sent Mr. Charles Atkinson Nov 1773 Sir, Your Favour of the 29th October came in course. I was Last Week with Mr Lavie & it is his Oppinion that we should sell at such a price as we can get the Quantity being so very small as not to be worthwhile keeping. Therefore unless you think there be a very great probability of a Considerable rise in the Lead trade I do advise you to dispose of what you have as soon as Posable & would have the Cash Paid about the 18th or 20 December at Latest. I bought a parcel of Ore which will be to pay for at Old Martinmass & as I have none of Lord Carlisles Cash in Hand will be much obliged to you if you can let my Son who will be in NewCastle on Saturday the 6th Inst have Seventy Pounds. I am &c Jona Hilton
Day not given. Since Hilton says he was with Lavie ‘last week’ this was presumably before the 17th, when he wrote to Lavie. 15th is used here.
