Messrs Finlay & Co

      In reply to your lre of the 17th inst the return made on 31st July and stated 31,879P[iece]s of Refinable Lead, is a correct statement of the stock of that description of Lead at Blaydon and at the Mills- Mr Pattinson will work up the whole of the refinable lead now on hand at Blaydon, as well as the refinable lead made from the Ore of the year ending Sept 1833 in twelve months from this time. The old stock will have to be worked up as conscience may <eccise.> indiscriminately with the new stock.

I sent you yesterday a statement of the Comm[on] Lead we can deliver by the end of October next.

Viz 7000 P[iece]s of refined L[ea]d we can deliver a much larger quantity.

Messrs Maltby have not advised me of their Payment of the £5,500 but have no doubt the Berwick Bankers will do so by tomorrows Post.

						Yours etc Benj Johnson

WB Lead Office Sept 19 1833
