Dear Sir							

	On looking over our stock of lead at Blaydon I find we cannot at present spare more than 1000 p[iece]s of Common Lead  - and in offering that qty to Mr Thompson I am now deviating from our usual mode of Sales & must not be considered as a president for future Sales.

	The price for 1000 p[iece]s including one thenth slag will be £13 Six Mos Credit from date of Contract or 21/2 p Cent for Cash

								I am Sir BJ

Is Cookson Esqr

A two year community project, it was led by the Friends of the North Pennines in partnership with Hexhamshire and Slaley Parish Councils and the active support of Allendale Estates.
