Dear Sir

       I fear from your account that the objections to the appointment of C. Hodgson are unimpeachable & I am the last person who would wish to advocate his claims when his want of merit is established.

       I gladly gave my consent to the new mode of letting the Hospital Farms: all the reasoning against the former practise is unanswerable & my confidence in you justifies the adoption of private Bargain in the place of Public Tenders.   That confidence I am satisfied is not misplaced - & I remain


J. Grey Esq.
