										Saturday 13th 96

Dear Skelton,

As I had not an opportunity of seeing Mr. Barker, and meeting Mr. Wilson, I requested him to speak to him and enclosed I send you his Answer. The Trustees should be made acquainted with his reply – I have also sent you Mr. Stephenson’s letter to me, which I have given this Answer to. That I cannot give him any security for £300 to be paid to him on his resignation, that unless he will agree to the terms proposed, I cannot find myself to be responsible for the money being paid, but I should send his Letter for the perusal of the Trustees – I wish you would have some conversation on this subject, for he does not appear to mind any thing but the <boarders>, & only wants the Alteration for that purpose & in that case it would not be attending to the intent of the Charity. I will write to you again – in haste

Yours Sincerely

T.R.B t.
Month not given but August was the only month in 1796 when the 13th fell on a Saturday
