Messrs Finlay Hodgson & Co	London				Newcastle Decr 27th 1832


Dear Sirs							

      I am favoured with your letter of the 24th inst & enclose you a copy of Mr Taylor’s lre to Mr Pattinson & one from Mr Henry – both relating to the stock of Lead and Lead Ore on the Western side of the Island.

      I have just had Mr Parker – he offers £12/10- & £13- for 10,000 p[iece]s which I have declined. Mr Beaumont who is here has directed me to offer him that quantity at £13 & £13/10s which I have done. Mr Parker will write to his brother by this days Post & give me an answer on Monday. Of course I shall decline further sales for the present which it is Mr Beaumonts wish that I should do. The Refd Lead sold by Mr Crawhall, or rather stated to have been sold at £12/5s cannot have been Hudgate Burn Refd Lead unless it is Refd Slag. I think it most probably has been some Rotherhope Fell as I know from Mr Crawhall that they have for some time past refused to sell Hudgate Burn Lead under £12-10s

      I fear we cannot adopt your suggestion about marking the lrs for the office under cover to Mr Beaumont the mail which takes Mr Bts lrs to Bywell leaves before the Post office delivery and it would consequently delay Mr Bts lrs a day to have them sent to the office. All the abstracts etc shall be forwarded to you as early as possible after the !stJany

	I am /-   BJ
