Chippenham <1>

22nd Jany 1829

Dear Sir,

There are about a dozen Elms that ought to be taken down this Winter (6 at Wick <2> & 6 at Nash Hill <3>) for the purposes of good Husbandry – some being dead & some in danger of falling – With your permission I will order them to be thrown–

I hope, next Winter, that there will be a larger Lot to dispose of – as half the UnderWood at Taclemoor <4> will then be fit to cut

I am dear Sir
Yr Obliged & Obedt Sert
