Marked 'private and confidential'; has heard of book, feels it is too late to establish Timothy Hackworth ‘had long since abandoned that hope’ ‘Almost every educated child on earth and most of the adults, have for over half a century been taught to believe that the title belongs to George Stephenson!!!’; Samuel Holmes has asked him to send any papers to Robert Young, however he has 'practically nothing' that will help; discusses Samuel Adamson, what has been the fate of members of the family.
