Dear Sir       I hope that this may find you very well again & that Mr Noble got well home.  Mr Wilson would mention to you something that has pass’d relating to the Grand Lease Colliery of which you have 1/12 share;  A Mr Edington has made Application to me & some other of the Proprietors for a Lease of their shares of that Colliery as well as a way Leave through part of your Estate; he is an Adventurer & is not Connected with any Person of Fortune or Credit; on wch Account I would beg leave to Recommend that you have nothing to say to him.   When you come into the North in the Winter we can have some conversation respecting the Grand Lease Colliery etc.   Mr Peareth called on me yesterday & left two letters from Mr Tower to him, Copies of which I inclose you: You have seen the former, but you will please to let me know what Answer must be given the latter.                          I am etc    J. E. Blackett
