Thomas Temperley.                     						Farnacres 29th August 1781

       We are glad to hear you still continue to get water tho' it is rather hard in the work at Stublick Colliery Levell; as we are also that you have got into the new Pit at Stublick Colliery & have plenty of breadth of good Coal and we approve of your having set off Walker for the reason you have given.  We must not desert selling for ready Money.   We approve of what you have done & propose with respect to the Yard Coal Pit ridding out & securing the Roof.  You are desired to get such Pits filled up as you judge necessary & take care to get that work done as low as you can & let us know the expence & we will settle that matter with Mr Bell when we see him at Hexham.      We are

       Your Humble Servants

      Walton & Turner

       Yours with the Operation and Thos Temperleys Weekly Account is come to hand this moment just after we had Sealed the Inclosed.

       Under the circumstances you mention we shall not think of building the Rooms till the Spring & therefore they need not do any thing as to getting Limestones.

        We are Your Humble Servants

       Walton & Turner 

PS.  Notwithstanding the Rooms are not to be built this Season we wd have the Stones of all kinds got to the place.
