Messrs Finlay Hodgson & Co	London				Dec 5th 1833

I have received your letter of the 3rd inst advising the receipt of £4363-14-2 from Messrs Walker Parker & Co and Payment of the same to to Mr Beaumonts credit at Glyns & Co. I note your sale of 10,000 P[iece]s to Walkers Parker & Co and hand you a statement of our Stocks at Blaydon. Should you effect a further sale of 10,000 P[iece]s to <there> <Parties> as you anticipate I beg to call your attention to our Stock of Selected Refined, which you will see is fast diminishing and it would be most desirable if you could make the the anticipated Sale one half Refined to consist of half selected half ordinary Half Common included up 1/10 Slag. We shall be under the necessity of stopping the Lead carriage from the Mills at the end of the present Month and it wil be Feb[ruar]y ere we can reopen it. The Roads at present are intolerable and we are threatened with the exaction of full Winter Tolls which would call for an advance on the <cars> of credit. I will send you a statement of the Stock at the Mills when I return from them the end of next.
