John Parker junr Esqr  25 Throgmorton St London. 

I am favored with your Letter of the 20 Inst, containing one of your Circulars relative to consuming Smoke under Steam Engine Boilers etc. Before I can take upon myself the responsibility of recommending your plan for the Lead Works at Limehouse, I must obtain more personal knowledge than I at Present possess, of the general efficacy of its application; & whether the time expended in preparing the apparatus, the increase of Laborage, the possible <diminution> in the power of the Engine & the eventual Expense of the apparatus itself with the remuneration you demand, may not exceed the advantage to be derived by its adoption. 

      I am etc MM
