States that Timothy Hackworth supplied stationary engines to collieries in Northumberland but not locomotives; lists locomotives built by William Lister who had a workshop near Hope Town Railway Foundry, belonging to W & A Kitching, this was not built in 1832 as stated by Robert Young but was an extension of an existing plant; suggests articles that will assist in research.

The letter is dated ‘Tuesday’.
