Mr Skelton,

      Your esteemed fav[ou]r of the 27th Inst. came duly to hand. I do assure you that I should not have made application for the Cleckheaton Colliery had I not be informed that it was to be disposed of, as I should be ashamed of myself in being an Instrument of takeing any thing out of the Hands of another person in an unfair Way, I am glad that you have considered to take a further Trial of the present Tenants and I wish it may Ansr. both your and their End, if you ever should have the Cleckheaton, or any other Colliery, to dispose of I shall esteem it as a favour conferred on me to have an Offer of it, I remain

      Sir Your obt. Humle Servt

      <Wm> Child
