Thomas Temperley 

       We duly reced your Letter of the 25th Ulto and observe what you mention about the Collieries at Brokenheugh Fell End and Fourstones.

       What you mention about Stublick Level gives us pleasure because we are likely to get faster forward by what has happened, but the circumstances show us how very carefull we ought to be in our proceedings.  If it should happen that we meet with a dip Dyke to throw the Whin Posts below us, we shall be in luck and hope it will prove so, at least in some degree.

       When you write next let us know how the Workings and Sale of Coals go forward at the time.

       Last Week was very unfavourable for the New House but we hope this Week will do a great deal towards making up what was lost, upon the whole we cannot help thinking the Weather has been remarkably fortunate for that busyness.

       We are Yours etc 

       W & T
