Messrs Finlay & Hodgson

      I duly received your letters of the 10th& 11th Inst. I now have your own bankers A/c up to the close of the year. I have requested them to send you a Monthly A/c in future. [?]rw are already in possession of my cash A/cs up to the end of Jany. I also send a prospective acct of Receipts & Payments up to the end of Octr next & a prospective Lead A/c to the end of May by which time the 10,000 Bings smelted by the Hudgill Co will be completed. I have not taken into a/c any payments from Mr Key on A/c of the Limehouse works or on his own A/c which you can best obtain from him. The general annual A/c shall be made out & sent as soon as finished. The Exorships A/c for the Limehouse Works you will receive next week.

	The drawing at Allenheads is all let & a portion of the Weardale. I hope in a very short time the whole of the drawing will be let. I will request the Messrs Crawhall to send you a statement of the expected saving by this arrangement over the old system, which will be considerable.

	I understand WalkersParker & Co purchased a large qty of the Lead a short time back price or qty at present not known. Believed to be £13 & £12/10. You will observe the dates of payments marked with red ink in the prospective A/cs of Messrs Maltbys agreeable to their contract.

	I am sir    BJ
