Dear Sir,

I feel obliged by your kind consideration but if you will ascertain where Mr Mansel Talbot <1> is to be met with I will wait upon him either in Town or Country as you may determine, any day after next Friday

I received the Map and should have gone to Wick Farm this Morning but I found that your Tenant would not be at home.

The withdrawal of the offer of Compensation in <lieu?> of the third Bridge appears very extraordinary: I thought you will might have accepted it without injury to your Property or much inconvenience to your Tenant.

I am dear SirYour obliged Servant

West Awdry.

H. F. Talbot Esq
