R H. Furness Bridlington Yorkre

I am this day favored with your Letter of yesterdays date and in reply beg to inform you, that the price for Litharge is £22 pTon, 6 Mon[th]s credit, and that, on these terms I am ready to supply you from our depot at Blaydon with 5 or 10 Tons as you may require. Having considerable demand for our Litharge it would not be an inducement to Us to enter into an Agreement to dispose of it upon any other terms, than those long established; and therefore have only to state, if the quantity you will consume of Litharge is large, that We shall be disposed to place you on the most favored footing. – I am etc 	MM

P.S. – the Litharge will be Scaley and not mixed with Lumps.
