Finlay Hodgson & Co		


	I have duly recd your letter of 29th Ult advising of Messrs Maltby & Co purchase of 50 Casks of Litharge at £14-10/- which will be shipped for them this week. The mark allude to by them will be the one used at Blagill Mill which is somewhat different from the other mills purposely to distinguish it. The weight of the Lead will decide  its quality. Can you induce Messrs Malby’s to purchase a few thousand pieces of Refd Lead giving them half selected & half half ordinary at £14. Common we cannot supply. They have just purchased 600 frs Common Lead of the Fallowfield Co at £13/5-. I will forward my Monthly Cash A/c as soon as you or Mr Key advise of £1000 payed to the Bishop. Messrs Bayley & Co have got an order for the whole of their Refined Lead say 1500 frs – the whole of which will be shipped this week. I have no doubt our next Sales will be effected at £13-10/- & £14
