Ardrossan, 18 october 1861
Hte Worms Esq.
I wrote you yesterday and I have today received your letter of 16th enclosing bill on London for £ 550, due 24/27 inst. The charges on it are 6/ stamp and 9/6 interest in all 15/6 at your debit.
If you desire it I can ship you Iroon coals at 6/ less 2 ½% qualities known as "Hurlford", "Bourtrehill", "Duke of Portland" but these are useless for [...], the quality "Holmes & Galston" and "Barleith Dollars" are taken. I have lately bought for your Bordeaux House Iroon Coals as low as 5/9 less 2 ½% but quality is inferior and condemned by Mr Schacher. You have therefore I hope no cause to put orders past me.
[Bighou] has advanced 1/ per ton ([Gartsheirie] n°1 - 58 other brands in proportion.
