To Mr Holmes. Farnacres 13th Febry 1775 Dear Sir This day I was in Newcastle and I find by Lloyds List that Silver in Barrs is 5.4 1/4 which is 1/4d more P Ounce than when I last wrote you, which makes one imagine that fine Silver may have got a rise since I wrote you; I shall therefore be obliged to you, if you will acquaint me by the first convenient opportunity, what price fine Silver bears, when this arrives; and the price it bore at your Markett at the time of writing this Letter. I am told that 5s8d 1/2 is the highest price that has been paid at Newcastle for some considerable time, and that is the price now offered there. I am Dear Sir. Your most hble Servt N W Junr PS I have been very far from well for some time and am now very indifferently not having the least Appetite or Spirits. All here join in best respects to you Mrs Holmes and Family. We have a Cake of fine Silver now at Newcastle which is that reserved for Mr Langlands but if I cannot get 5s9d for it at least, it shall certainly take its chance at London.
