Mr Chr Bell.                                 				Farnacres 2d February 1781

      As it may admit of some doubt whether you can be permitted to sell Coals lying at Stublick Colliery after the End of yr Term, though you have an undoubted right to remove such Coals, at any time within Six Months after the End of the Term, we beg leave to propose it to you that the Lease be paid before Mr Fawcett, & for that purpose,should be glad that you or your Son would come down, & bring The Lease, and we will attend Mr Fawcett along with you & whoever you think proper, and shall be concluded by his Opinion; and we assure you we do not wish in the least to abridge you of any right you may have under the Lease.   We shall be glad to hear from you and are 

           Dear Sir Yr etc
