Letter from William Mason to John Murgatroyd Esq.

On headed notepaper from Beeton Rope Works.

Sir,

If at any time the house at Tankside, Lob Mill, now occupied by Mrs. Greenwood, should become vacant, we think it would be a very rentable house for us as we are the occupiers of the Rope Works at Lob Mill and it would be more convenient for our business. I should be greatly obliged if you would consider this if at any time it should become vacant.

Yours Respectfully,

pp William Mason
