       We have reced your Letter of the 19th and have no objection to your employing such number of Miners you mention that is Eight provided you are clear to have a Vend for the Coals but shd not we see how our Vend goes on for a little before we have that Number.   We are glad to hear the Coal is promising.  Wm Walker we think shd not be employed & desire he may not be employed 'till we have an opportunity of considering that matter when the pay is to be made.  The Setting on of a Gin may as well be let alone till the same time & we will then talk over what relates to that.

       Your well wishers

       Walton & Turner
