To Mr Thos. Temperley.                				Farnacres 30th Augst 1780


       I have reced your Letter of the 28th inst and quite approve of what you have done and propose respecting the carrying forward the Level for Winning Stublick Colliery and I have only to observe that I shd be glad to have the Lengths between Staple and Staple to be as great as they possibly can not to create too much inconvenience to the Workmen and care must be taken to fix them so as to suit the Hollows of the Ground to save sinking as much as that can properly be done and I beg the level may be carried in a direct Line.

       I beg you will request your Brother Nicholas from me, that he will not attempt to do any Work til his hand has got perfectly healed, as a bruise or Strain now might endanger his hand if not his Life.   

I am for Mr Turner & Self

Yours etc

       N W Junr
