William Manning letter

Scope and Content

2 letters to Thomas Tyrell, Esq.
(1) Address: 14 New Street, Spring Gardens, [Westminster]. Concerning proposals for the regulation of a new coal market. Asks whether Tyrell sees any difficulty in it being managed by the Lord Mayor of London and whether the Corporation interferes with any market in the City. The building in Mark Lane is open to all on market days, but the Coal Exchange is open to subscribers only; the first buyers do not exceed about one hundred (29 November 1800).
(2) Address: Totteridge, Hertfordshire. Discusses the fees to be incurred in passing the Coal Bill through the two Houses of Parliament [ordered March 1801; order for second reading discharged 12 May 1801], and the means of paying them. Asks Tyrell to show the letter to Mr Stracey, 19 Fludyer Street, and to confer with him about it (4 April 1801).
Both letters are autograph, with signatures, and headed 'private'.
