Messrs Finlay Hodgson & Co London			2nd Mar 1833

Dear Sirs!

      I duly recd your letters of the 27 & 28 Ulto I shall forward per Coach tomorrow my annual acct & Cash & Sales A/c for last Month. I have written to Mr Parker to request he will pay into Glyns & Co to Mr Bts credit with Batson & Co the first payment due the 8th Inst. upon his purchase in Apr last. I shall draw upon him in two Bills at 1 & 2 Mos from 8th Inst. for the Balance & forward them to you for his acceptance. I cannot give you any positive information upon the qty of Com Lead we can make for a few days. Mr Pattinson is now experimenting upon it & you shall have the result as soon as I receive it.

      You will no doubt have heard of the Company’s Sale of 5000 p[iece]s to Mr Thompson & 5000 p[iece]s to Messrs Maltby at £12/10 & £13. It really is a pity they give way to the Purchasers in this way. One week’s firmness on their part wd establish the price at £13 & £13.10/-

	I have two parties here holding back until a Sale has been effected at that price, not wishing to be the first to advance the market the Co. selling at that price

							I am Sir  BJ
