Tho[ma]s Key Esq							Nov 30th 1833


I have duly rec[eived] your letter of the 15 Inst advising the payments of £411.5.9 to Messrs Finlay & Co to be placed to the credit of the Lon[don] Works.  If Messrs Grace & Freeman are correct in the copy of the invoice under date of trhe 8 March it is clear Mr Backhouse must have made a mistake in making it out. The weight should be 455 “ “7 and not 445 “ “7 The money statement in the invoice is correct & you must please to explain this to them & get them to pay the £6-15/- they have deducted. If they refer to the other parcels of the same number of pieces they will see that the weight has been incorrectly returned. Our market is looking well £14/10 & £15 now fully established here.

	We are charging Litharge at £15 ..10/-

							I am Sir BJ
