October 6. 1846.

Dear Sir,

We have not yet come to any definitive Arrangement with Mr Burgess but we think it very probable that we shall make one which will render it unnecessary for us to ask you to give him permission to make use of one of your bridges.

We shall however be glad if we can get your consent to substitute a level crossing in lieu of the Bridge near Wick Farm House for which accomodation the Company will of course be ready to pay you a reasonable compensation –

Will you kindly inform me what you think of this and if you approve of the Plan what Amount would be satisfactory to you –

You will perhaps remember that Mr Easton did not consider the Bridge necessary.

I am Dear Sir Your obedient faithful servt
