	Sir Walter Blackett has ordered me to discharge Mr Ralph Forster immediately from his Service which I have done by a Letter delivered him by the Bearer.  As to the two Drainers Mr Blackett tells me they will not come this Six Weeks or two months to Wallington; having met with a Job that detains them - P.S.  I am sorry for your Accident; as to the Drainers I do not suppose they have any Beds of their own so they must be supplied.
