Respected Friend
L Raisbeck
I think it best to inform thee, that Mewburn I believe is quite prevailed upon not to give any further attention to the coal owners opposition: not but that it is most energetically working this I was anxious about; that the two Companies may steer clear of each other __
I have seen the “caution”. I most deeply regret it; all parties pursuing their own interests have equal rights of_ advocacy; any set of Gentlemen holding up others of the same standing; by a word attached to the operation of Sharpers & swindlers is deplorable; similar papers from individuals I have seen; but that is original, I am glad to say: is the impression a natural one, that the cause cannot be good which requires such a publication? or are its espousers are afraid their opponents want some Cayenne to make them do their work more effectually? I hope whatever each party has done against each other, will be forgiven mutually. but your must do so no more,
I am sure my Fr'd LR head on his pillow; & heart in the right place, will regret if he touched the Caution with his finger_
With much Regard
& I am as confident of his Thy assured fr'd
wifes uniting in the sentiment Edward Pease

P.S. I conclude a bill of the Rway extension has been sent thee, how is it thy name is not also attached to it as Solic’r, is by agreement or oversight?
