To Fras Tweddell Esqr.					North Allerton 17th Feby. 1777


Dear Sir

      We duly reced. the favour of your letter of the 14th expressed in very obliging and Genteel Terms and indeed we think it so necessary to keep ourselves at liberty when any applications are made to us to supply vacancys in so material a work as Langley Mill that we have discouraged them as much as possible & have even desired the Commissioners of Greenwich Hospital themselves to leave the matter with us which they have been so condescending as to do.   We are yours &c

      W & S
