Gentn Penydarran Place
May 31st 1807
On my return home I find your favr of the 25th Inst. Its
impossoble for me to say if Mr trevithick has done any act to incumber the
property, has has in the Engine Concern - over which I hold the control by a
Deed of Agreement
So far as concerns me I have no objectn to his disposing of
his share, provided I am not injured & plaved in a worse situation.
I have no wish whatever o prevent him from selling & mkaing
the most of his share. There is an Account now not closed between
me & him which by calling upon Mr Bill at No 49 Rathbone Place
he can settle with Mr Trevithick. There is is likewise a note of Hand
of Mr Trevithick I now hold for £300 dated 4th Jan 1804 which I shall
of course sett off against his accot of Patent Right as it comes due & I
receive it. for any information you may with respecting any legal
forms necessary for the completion of Mr Trevithick's sale, on my part
I beg leave to refer you to Messrs Strong Still & Strong Lincolns Inn.
I am Gentn
Yr most obnt Servt
Messrs Blagrave & Walter Saml Homfray

PS The Accot I believe is a small one & easily adjusted & the note of hand
I could endorse to your client which they could charge Mr Trevithick as so
much of the purchase money & they pay that sum to me. SH
