Mr Francis Hurry Farnacres 14 March 1782. Dear Sir, Mr. Walton desired Mr. Jona Airey yesterday to bespeak a Coil of Rope for Greenwich Hospital for Stublick Colliery, and desired it might be consigned to Messrs. Mulcaster at Langley Mill, but as we think it will be better to have it go immediately to the Colliery, we give you the trouble of this Letter to desire you will send it by James Johnson Hexham Carrier on Monday Morning directed to Mr. Thomas Temperley at Stublick Colliery, and send him at the same time a Bill of Parcels. Mr. Temperley does not say what length the Rope is to be; you will therefore make it of the usual length of a Coil of such kind of Rope as is now wanted, and send you a little Scrap of Paper herein equal in length to the proper Circumference of it. We are Dear Sir Your most Hble Servts. Walton & Turner PS. Mr. Walton intends sending the Treatise on Seamanship to Mr. Yeilders tomorrow Morning and thanks you for the Loan of it.
