Mr Mulcaster. Farnacres 28 Decemr 1780 We have received your Letters of the 24th & 25th and observe their Contents. Having fully considered the matter as to Thomas Temperley's House and the accommodating him with Ground near Stublick and not being quite clear that we can get his House at the Colliery ready in time for him to go there against May Day we desire you will tell him that you have reced our direction to acquaint him that tho' we are determined to observe the little Farms at Langley Mill for the use of the Mill yet as there may be an uncertainty as to the time of getting his House at Stublick Colliery ready we think it will be prudent to let him remain in the House he now is till the new one is ready and that you have our directions to that purpose and also that he is to have the Farm which belongs thereto for one year from the 12th of May next at its present Rent and to continue in possession of it till there is occasion for it -the House for the Mill and with regard the other House let it remain empty till there is occasion for it; and the Farm we desire you will take from year to year, till it is wanted, in this way there will be time for us to see the Old House at Stublick and consider fully what is necessary to be done, and in the mean time we would have you to employ James Watson & Wm Howdon to view the House and let us have an Estimate of the Expence of putting every thing right so as that the Hospital Agent at Stublick Colliery may have a comfortable House. We expect Thos Temperleys immediate answer to the above and you may show him this Letter. We are Your Humble Servts Walton & Turner We cannot yet say anything abt the new Winning Thos proposes yet.
