To Mr Radley


	The Draught of the Lease of Throckley Colliery has been laid bfore Mr Browell ho has p[er]used it & has no Other Objection to it than that with regard to the Utensells (of which the Attorney Generall has order’d a Schedule to be made) to be left out where it is Scored under with Red Ink. For as there is no Utensells belonging to the Hospitall it is unnecessary; it is a Common Covenant in Colliery Leases & always Incerted  whether there be utensells or not but where none are a Schedule Cannot be made.

	We cannot at present furnish you with the place of abode of the Persons who are to have Tacknotes, but will in a Week or Ten days or as soon as we can be furnished with an Acct thereof. Mr Mason of Lanster we know nothing of So that you must be Inform’d from himself, or from Mr Co[…]t  who I believe may know all you want to be furnished with in regard to him. You must take care to make all the Tacknotes of different dates in Order that the [Provens] may take place to prevent one of them from Interferance with another & you must be govern’d in that by the times of Application for those Tacks, That is those that first applied must have the first grant or the Earliest date. This you must not omitt to prevent dispute.

	I am Sr &c

      N. Walton
