My dear Sir
Of course if you think it necessary to have an agreement prepared by a conveyancer I should make no objection altho a letter signed by me has been considered sufficient in larger transactions and is much more [illegible word] but if such an agreement is to be drawn up the party doing it must act as between the two and not for one side
As regards the minor points I have no objection to the restriction as to permanent buildings but I stated to Mr King <1> that the company has no power to prevent workmen <2> who sleep in the village from working on the railway and consequently none to prevent the reverse and cannot therefore enter into any agreement on the subject As I conceive there can be no difficulty on these points and with the above understanding I have signed the Memorandum
I am dear Sir Yours very truly
I K Brunel.
