Thomas Temperley                          				Farnacres 9th February 1781

      We have reced your Letter of the 5th and approve of what you propose with regard to the Winning the Little Coal and Estimate of Expenses and time it will take to Winn the same; as also of what you intend as to the tryal of the Stone Coal.  Tho' it appears you have had a hard Job in the Boring way we hope it may prove better in the driving.  What you have done as to Letting the Sinking is very right as we doubt not your having Lett it as low as the Nature of the case required.  We are glad if Water in the Level still increases and for the reasons you give we are satisfied it will not be worthwhile to have a Water Blast.  We have reced Mr Mulcasters Letter about the House & think what has been done is very proper.  We write this day to desire the Contractors to take the first opportunity of seeing Mr Mulcaster & you.  We wrote you the 4th inst which hope you have received.

      We are Your Humble Servants

      Walton & Turner
