Thos Key Esq London					Newcastle on Tyne Feby 5th 1833


My dear Sir

	Mr Brakenridge informs me he has not received the Lead pipes wanted at Bretton Hall of which I advised you under date of Decr 29th. Will you be so good as to write to him & explain why they have not been sent.

      Mr Hodgson in his last lre states that you are prevented closing your lead a/c of last year, wanting the river charges here.

      The Keel dues are 21s/ pr Keel of 300 p[ieces]scharged to us, but all other parties pay & have paid 25s/. I suppose the large quantity was the means of getting it done at a lower rate than our neighbours. We have to give Mr Josh Crawhall an order for 300 p[iece]s Slag which is shipped today, & will leave the river tomorrow. I shall be able to ship the Litharge next week provided we get to work tomorrow and which expect will be the case.

The Hudgill Co have sold 3000 p[iece]s refd at £13

				Yrs truly 

					Benj Johnson
