Extract from Mssrs Walton & Smeaton's Letter to Jno Ibbetson Esq 	29th May 1773

       As the Establishments at Langley Mill are considerable we beg leave to suggest to the Board whether an Insurance from Fire shd be gone into; the buildings are not in their nature or use more than commonly liable to this accident and are as much as possible detached from one another & we do not know of an Insurance of the kind; notwithstanding we thought it proper to mention this matter to the Board.
