J E Blackett Esq 							London 17th April 1799


      In answer to your esteemed of the 24th March I thank you for your kind offer to purchase the Lead for me which I am sure you would do on the best terms in your power but as I find the price is lower at Hull say £16.10. I have ordered 150 tons there and consequently shall not have occasion to trouble you till your account is more favourable. Believe me with sentiments of respect. 

      Sir Your most Obd Servt.	Arch’d Paris

The Ex at St Petersburg is fallen to 24 ¼ p ruble
