Dear Sir.

I thank you very much for letting me see the papers about the proposed Northfleet ship building Company and also for your kind suggestions as to a seat on the Direction.

I am however unable to avail myself of the opportunity - partly because other information throws great doubt on the ....... held out by the prosperity - and partly and not immaterially because my crippled means suggests to me not to lock up new ... I have already fixed.

With much regards

I am Dear Sir

Your .....

John Mollett
