Farnacres Sunday Morn:1:Augt 1762 Sir The bearer Ralph Marley Engine Wreight & Gawen Croan Engine Keeper, comes to Enter upon their respective Offices at Fallowfd. Engine the former at Ten Shillings a Week & the latter at Eight Shillings, you to provide them Houses and Fireing. R Marley is at present a Single Man, but may probably alter his Scituation, in that pticular, in wch Case he must have a House and Firing. Gawen Croan has the Same Wages, I have mentioned above, from us, & has a Family Imployed under Lord Ravensworth, wch must be provided for, with work as valuable to him, as what they now have, or he will be a looser by comeing to Serve you. I must therefore desire you will take care, that the poor Man may not be a Sufferer; & I have no Doubt but both he and Ralph Marley, will behave so well, as to deserve your Notice and Encouragement. They are both Sober Men, & I dare Say will doe all in their power. I am Sir Your Humble Servt. Nicho Walton [addressed on verso:] to Mr. Armstrong at Matfin
