To Mr Radley at Greenwich


	In answer to yours of the 25th Inst. I am of opinion that it is not necessary for Doctor Lowther at the Determination of his Lease for a year to Covenant in any future Lease that he will imploy any greater number of hands, than four to each mine, nor to build any other mills, than the late Col. Liddell and he did, as these in all probability will smelt & stamp more, than the produce of the whole moor, both by the late & future Leases, nor is it necessary for him to Covenant to lay out any sum in these Works certain.

	I will consult Mr Airey with regard to what you say relating the Intruders at high Green Colliery & he or I will give you a proper answer. I am of opinion that an Injunction to Stay the Working of these Intruders would be an Effectual Stop. Mr Boag is from Home so that I am for him and self

      Sir Your most Hable Servant

      Nichos. Walton
