Sept 5. 1846.

Dear Sir.

I am at present so very busy moving to Notton Lodge that I trust you will excuse my having requested my Cousin to call on you in my stead – I am disposed to meet you as far as I possibly can and if the terms specified in the Memorandum inclosed <sic> herewith meet your views my Cousin can arrange with you as to the payment of the money or any other matters which may occur.

If you refer to Sec. 68 of the Railway Clauses Act you will see that the Company are bound to keep the Bridges in repair at all times and of course this will be done in your case. The bridge must be the full width &c for loaded waggons. Your claim to a <illegible> will be allowed if allowed to any other Landowner –

With reference to the distance of 20 feet which the Company <illegible> to be allowed to take nearer the Abbey than the Agreement specifies you will see on reference to our previous correspondence that the matter is already disposed of –

My Cousin will leave this Note and if you think it desirable to see him he will go into the matter with you being fully acquainted with all the circumstances

I have the Honor to beDear Sir
Yours faithfully

H G Awdry.

W H F Talbot Esq
Lacock Abbey.
