PRINTED LETTER from Vivian and Sons, dated Truro, Feb. 21, 1818.
Denies a malicious rumour that was circulated to the Truro papers, implying Vivian and Sons had taken more than their fare share of the profits from their stake in the Anglesey Mines. 32 lines, 4to. There was probably a blank conjoint leaf with the name of the addressee, but this has been torn off. The letter was presumably meant to be published in the local papers.
¶ Vivians had been awarded the contract for smelting the ores of the Mona Mine, 'at Lord Anglesey's request... in the prosecution of the Mona Mine, we more than tripled the produce; we paid Lord Anglesey above £5,000 for dues...'
