To Mr Peter Mulcaster.                         				Farnacres 28th July 1780

Mr Mulcaster

       I am very much concerned for the loss of George Temperley who always appeared to me to be, as you very properly say, a most faithfull Servant and indeed I was happy in the Idea of our having a person who I, as well as Mr Turner, hoped to give Incouragement to and retain in the service of Greenwich Hospital for a long time but how uncertain are all our Expectations and there is no saying how long any of us are to continue.   I should be glad to have Thomas Temperley employed in the room of his Brother on the same conditions and doubt not we may make it worth his while to continue with us after the Colliery comes into the hands of Greenwich Hospital; but of that shall say more at meeting, & hope I shall see Thomas Temperley on Tuesday Morning and assure you we think ourselves obliged by your Attention to this business.  If you could be at the Golden Lion on Monday Evening it would be very agreable to me and we will then talk over the above busyness and also what relates to your Nephews Farm.  I am for Mr Turner and Self

       Your etc
