Messrs Finlay Hodgson & Co  London

      I am this day favoured with your letter of the 9th inst and one from Mr Key enclosing 13 Bills together value £ 1690.6.10 ch/w with £3000 paid you on the 5thnst we carry to the credit of the London Works as also £2061.12.1 paid to Messrs <Intock> & Co for the repairs to the Limehouse Wh[ar]f Wall debiting Mr B[eaumon]ts private account with their several Sums. Mr Key states that he expects to receive back from The <Lever> Lee Co of this sum £1690.6.10 leaving Mr B[eaumon[ts liability £363.6.5.

      We observe that Mr Key has opened an Ac[coun]t for himself in the Limehouse Books for the amount of his stocks on the 1st Jan[uar]y last, and that he expects to liquidate this am[oun]t by the end of next month.

      I am glad the London Co have sold 3000 p[iece]s Ref[ine]d Lead at £15 . –it will establish that Price and I think we need not fear any reaction. Your observation on various entries to be made will be attended to. I shall write to Mr Hodgson by tomorrows Post.

Letter undated, assumed from sequence to be 9 November
