Scope and Content

From Richard Williams to Mary Tooth. He found Messrs Lees and Cranage at his house when he came home with the estimate for £230 - it is a very clear and fair document.

Cranage asked if they were to have the job and Williams agreed as they had acted so far like honest men. Cranage will copy the estimate and Tooth can then examine it. Several people have wished to bid for this work, but he thinks that they have done the right thing by not giving to Nicle[?] and Runell.

Cranage has full power to set the men to work and Williams supposes it will commence this afternoon.
