Thomas Temperley                                                 				Farnacres 31 July 1781 

       We have reced your Letter of the 29th & think it will not be worth while to try the Seam of Coal you have met with as it is so thin as 8 Inches.

       Mr Bell certainly ought to fill up the Old Pits. Glad to hear all goes well on at the Collry.

       When you write again upon half a Sheet let it be inclosed in a Blank Half Sheet & in the making out of your Colliery Accounts for the time to come begin them on the Inclosed Sheet & then all will seen at one View.

       We are Yr Hble Servts

      Walton & Turner
