Mr Wm Hollier.                          						Farnacres 8 July 1781.   


       On Enquiry we find the carriage of Slags to Bells Close will be 15/- or at the lowest 14s/6d P Ton.  If after the Tryal you make, we can agree for such Quantity as we can annually spare you, we shall consider the Quantity which we send for the Tryal as a part, but in case your Prices do not agree after the Tryal, we must set such a price upon such Quantity as you get as not to lose by letting you have them.  You'll be so good as let us know whether you would have 20 or 25 Tons; if equal to you, we wd rather chuse you to fix upon 20 Tons and it is expected we shall be enabled to send you that Quantity in about one Month from this Day. We are

       Yr etc. Walton & Turner
