Dear Sir

      I am sorry to hear your Rookhope Road Meeting has ended so unsatisfactorily and so very different to what we had a right to expect. I must now request you to take prompt and efficient steps by endictment to compel the Parties liable to make the Road.

      I shall be at Allenheads on Wednesday come and would like to see you if you can come conveniently ride over and stop all night.

      I am dear Sir Yours truly

      Benj.n Johnson

Geo Crawhall Esq.
