Messrs Matthews & Son Rouen


I am this day favored with your letter of the 19th Inst; & having stated to you in mine of the 8th Inst the reasons which influenced my Conduct I beg that you will remove from your Minds, the feeling you appear to entertain, of distrust on my part. – Strangers as we are to each other that distrust had it ever been entertained by me, would have readily been removed by the respectable inference you give. The hesitation of exporting Lead arises from the lowness of the price in your markett, and of its being unusual in this office to export on its own Account. – I have however determined to send you One Hundred Tons as soon as I can procure a Vessel, and will, as you direct, draw upon Messrs Reed Irving & Co of London for two thirds of the Amount at three months date, on transmitting to them Bill Lading, and orders to execute the Insurance, and if the sale of this parcel answers my purpose I shall consign to you a further supply

	I am 	MM
