Copy letter from John Brown Willis Fleming to John Henry Hearn, local estate bailiff & solicitor at Ryde, concerning estate business.


Union Club
March 29th 1853

My dear Sir

I will abandon the alterations at Wootton Mill as far as regards the two tenements in the rear of the premises.

Griffin may have the house & land mentioned, where can we find another cottage for Salmon the Woodman?

You had better discharge Vanner who is only a weekly servant. Give him three days to make up his mind, & should he not communicate with you definitely by then, let the farm to Rolfe. Even should Vanner take it he must pay for all tenants work done by me since Lady Day.

Taylor may have one of the gates from Kemp Hill & send the old one to replace the one removed to Combley.

I approve of your notice to Mr Hewitt. Have the goodness to efficiently stop the road from his stone pit across my land immediately.

Mew must have back the acre of ground taken by Mr Hutchings for Building. The latter must pay for charges & all expenses.

Ever my dear sir
Faithfully yrs
John Fleming
