      I do not see anything objectionable in Mr. Swallows proposals. The granting a Lease, you say for 60 Years, in the proposals it says 63 Years for the Land, would make it necessary for an exchange of Land, as the Close is in the marriage Settlements, there being only one Close, and by Mrs. Beaumont’s signing her Consent to the Agreement, she being in Case of my Death so amply provided for, should Imagine would sufficiently satisfy the Trustees of the Settlement to accede to the Measure without any great trouble or expense & not make it necessary for to make any exchange, & that Mr. Swallow would not object to that measure, as it would save time.

      Your Statements in profits are only for 30 Years is Mr. Swallow at the expiration of the Lease or when the Ironstone is done to clear away the <rubbish> or leave it on the ground. Should the <heart Eye> Method not be found practicable, then he must pay for the Damage <ad valorem> to the Damage <done>. I always understood it would be better for the Children of Parkins to lease the Farm. I am so much taken up at this time, I cannot say more, but will write soon again –

      Yours &c

      T.R.B. -
