Thomas Temperley                                                           		Farnacres 19th Janury 1781 

       We have received yours of the 17th with the Boring Notes of 1757, of which you have taken Copies & we are obliged by your care of the Letters.    As soon as convenient we shall be glad to have your Opinion on getting a fresh Field of Coal between the Dykes & we shd also like to have as good an Estimate as you can make what the driving of the remaining part of the Level will cost including Staples & walling the necessary ones & youll remember no Wood is to be used in the Level for where it wont stand it must be Walled & covered in the same manner as the Conduited part?    We approve of your trying the Stone Coal immediately.   We observe what you say of the quantity of Slates to do a yard, and approve of what Mr Mulcaster and you have done abt Winning Stones etc.  We shall be glad to hear how you have agreed wth Robson & Coats.  It will be proper to have the oven in the Twofall part of the Back Kitchen and the Smiths Shop and Back Kitchen to join with a Gabel between of two foot Wall.          We are Your real well wishers

       Walton & Turner
