Mr Tristram Everest						Farnacres 9th April 1792

Dear Sir

       Saturdays Post brought me the favor of your Letter of the 5th Inst. and I am glad anything has been got done in favor of Lime and Limestones in the Berwickshire Road Act. I think the opposers of the Bill have acted very foolishly however I hope the Tolls as now intended will not hurt the Lime Trade and I think the demand for Coals will continue as at present or nearly so. The Meeting at the British Coffee House seemed to promise well but the disrespect shewn to you and Greenwich Hospital at that Meeting shewed that little good was to be expected. If Mr Hall was there with the

Committee he certainly must have behaved very ill to you in not causing you to be present?
Although signature is not included this is assumed to have been from Nicholas Walton
