Mr Beaumont	March 1823

I do not think any part of Broomley Fell can be planted this year to advantage as the snow is still upon it and the season is far advanced ... I am glad our markets are considerably better but unfortunately for most of the tenants they have marketed the greatest part of their corn of last years growth but it will nevertheless be the means of inducing them to continue their improvements in draining in expectation of the next being a better year.
