Scope and Content

From Haydon Hall, near Pinner, Middlesex, to Revd. Samuel Harpur in Coleraine, Ireland, re disposal of household effects before Clarke's removal to Ireland.

He is pleased that the schools project is going well. Mr. Wray has written re the finance of the school about which he appears to be under some misapprehension.

Clarke has collected about £300 so far, and will give it to the School Treasurer upon his arrival. Would Mr. C (Cromie?) or Mr. L be prepared to act in that capacity. The salary of the teacher cum preacher would be about £26 per annum. With regard to school finance it has been suggested that a small contribution could be collected from the parents, but Clarke stresses that "nothing on any account must be taken from the real poor".
