John E Blackett Esq

Sir	I received your favor of the 21st Jany in cause having no correspondence at Newcastle may I trouble you to employ a Broker to ship fifty tons of your lead for my House at S. Petersburg by the first ships at the lowest freight making the bill of lading to order.  Which will be an introduction for future shipments & avoid occasioning you this trouble again.  I depend on your charging me the lowest price by new bill at the customary date will meet due honor at the hands of Sir

      Your most odb svt 

      Arch'd Paris
