Thomas Temperley.                             					Farnacres 20th Decemr 1781

       We have reced your Letter of the 14th inst and are glad to hear you have got to work in the Yard Coal, and desire all possible care may be taken to have as many of those Coals wch it will now be necessary to work, kept in store for the use of the Reducing at Langley Mill, as Messrs Mulcaster can with convenience put under Cover; and after you have cleared the Yard Coal of Water, let the remainder of it when that is done, be worked only as it may be wanted for the reducing.

       What you have done as to Hutchinson is for the reasons you have given very proper, but you shd have immediately acquainted us when you discharged him, or rather we think it ought to have been before that.

       We do not see any objection to Geo Parker Senr and John Robinson being employed at the Level in manner you mention.

       In due time we do not fear having good Custom both for the Coals and Cinders and shall acquaint Mr Monkhouse & Co that we are able to furnish them with Coals at 4d P Load and Cinders at 9d P Sack.

       We are Your Humble Servants

       Walton & Turner
