Messrs Walton & Boag. Gentlemen.

	I reced. yours & very much Wonder the Commiss[ioner]s will allow me nothing which will be a hardship I am very unwilling as well as unable to bear it;  you Desire to know what will Content me, which I am at a stand to answer nor can I see what purpose my saying anything is, as to the particular as you say the Gentlemen will allow me nothing.  They see what I have Expended of which I am willing to lose one third & I do not doubt if they seriously [……] any less, but they will judge that to be a reasonable allowance . I shall submit it to their Considerations and as you are good judges could refer my case wholly to you If I am put upon the whole exoence I must throw up the colliery for I realy cannot work it and till I hear from the Honble Commiss[ioner]s are pleased to determine this affair I must be obliged to stop all proceedings which may tend to the compleating of winning the colliery. It is very hard upon me I hope you will assist me therein who am Gent. Yours &c Thos Stephenson
