Thomas Temperley 

       We have reced your Letter of the 6th inst and approve of what you have done as to Fourstones Colliery & Limestone Quarries, at your convenience shall be glad to have your report about the Collierys & Quarries.

       When you write next let us know how the Workings & Sale of Coals go forward at Stublick Colliery and whether there is any prospect of Coals being left at Bank at the End of the Term & what quantity & how long that Quantity may probably supply the demand.

       What has happened at the Levell is not unexpected & we hope as you do that there will soon be another Dike which will relieve you from the Hard Stone.  Your meeting with Water is very agreable.

       It gives us much pleasure to hear the House gets so well on & we flatter ourselves to see it quite compleat in our way to Alston.

       We are Your real well wishers

       Walton & Turner

PS.  We are much concerned on Account of your Fathers Illness as he has our best wishes & we hope he may still get well again.
