"Gentlemen,
You will remember that about Two years since I informed the Company that there was a Fossill in the Mines not yet brought into use that may be used to the advantage of the Company and requested I may have an assurance that it should not go through any other Hands but my own, and was informed by Mr Nealor That the Company agreed to the proposal.
I have been with several of the first Chymists in London, and find it is not likely that ever any great quantity will be consumed by them. Tho the Fossil is the subject of a great variety of Chymical experiments constantly - Little therefore is to be expected from that Quarter. Hume (?) of Long Acre has made an article he calls Permanent White. The Purest White & the strongest Poison in the World. This is sold at 2/- per oz. But one single oz would serve a Painter his life time as it is only used in miniature Painting as a water colour. It will not keep its colour when mixed with Oil or it would be a good substitute for White Lead.
There is only one way in which it is like to turn to advantage. That is by getting the Potters to try if they cannot use it in the Making of Porcelain. This after Travelling many miles I have done - and I hear from one of them He can use it. The same Article he procures from Derbyshire for which I learn he pays Three Pound pr Ton. This is so far superior that he has offered me five Pound for a Ton packed in Barrells & sent by water to a place he appointed, you will therefore see the expence of warfage Pac(king) & Car(ia)ge would bring it to nearly the same. But the grand object is to find a market for it & bring it into use.
Mr Wedgewood Tried it & could not make it do in the Factory at Worcester.
Now if The Company will confirm Their former declaration by entering into an agreement with me on stamp
1st That They will not dispose of the article to any other but my self
2ndy That I shall from time to time and at all times have delivered to me at Shrewsbury any Quantity I may want at Three Pounds pr Ton provided you can get it which is The fixed Price In Derbyshire - It will be no more than a proper encouragement and I will exert myself in every way to make it answer. And have no doubtor Question(?) but I can do it.
Should it be in my power I will be at Oswestry on Friday - but if not, If The Company think proper to draw the agreement plain & simple as herein stated - & sign it on a proper stamp I will pay The expence & abide by the agreement.
Am Gentlemen with all due respect - Yours
John Palmer

(Lord Ashburnham)
Copy of letter (unsigned) to sending copy of opinion taken by Messrs Farrer and Co with reference to the renewal of the lease of the Snailbeach Mine Company - Lord Bath had referred to writer to Mr Robinson who had just been appointed agent to the Marquis of Bath's estates and he referred the writer to Messrs Farrer. A lease had actually been prepared by the direction of the late Mr Davis of Longleat and execution only delayed by the late Marquis's absence abroad and subsequent death. "I am sure that your Lordship will at once perceive that the Marquis of Bath's interests are so intimately connected with those of the mine Company in this business that anything which may tend to damp their spirit of enterprise must necessarily affect him, and it is therefore that I feel confident I shall be held excused for troubling your lordship with this letter and urging a request that you will do me the favor to suggest sone plan of proceeding to enable the Trustees to overcome the difficulty arising from their want of power to act in this matter. I should myself have no doubt that an application to the Lord Chancellor would immediately furnish them with such power" Dated from Belmont near Oswestry

Answer from Lord Ashburton to J.V.Lovett esq
"This difficulty has been a subject of much regret with the guardians of Lord Bath. I trust that you and the other Gentlemen concerned are sensible that we are not holding back in this renewal with any interested design but that we find ourselves without power to do that which we have no hesitation in thinking should be done both for the interest of the Minor and in justice to the Company working the mines. But I need hardly remind you that any Act of the Guardians under insufficient power would be of no benefit to anybody -- I fear an Act of Parliament for this particular porpose would be an expensive remedy.
Mr Sidebottom does not seem to have been aware in giving his opinion that you did, according to your abatement, apply for your renewal within the period of 3 years stated in your lease -- I cannot doubt that your right can not be affected by the insufficient power of the Guardians ---"

Opinion of J.R.Kenyon, upholding the action of the trustees. It is no diminution of Colonel Lovett's interest, because he at the termination of his life interest will have the like rights against the person next in succession, unless by his own act he varies this. Opinion dated 27 August 1866

Contents:
Copy of letter to Lord Henniker referring to his note and enclosure, and proposal for an advance - though they might lend with no risk of the loss of the principal, the proceeds of the estate would be totally insufficient to secure regular payment of the interest - at the time of the purchase of Plas Chambers it was originally proposed that Mrs Heaton's fortune should be advanced in part payment of the purchase money and secured by mortgage on the Plas Heaton estate but a legal adviser said the trustees ought not to advance money on such an inadequate security and Heaton was obliged to pay 5% for money borrowed elsewhere. The estate must have been a better security then than it would be now. "I should be very glad to concur with you in any arrangement that might be for the benefit of the family but I suspect you have not been put in possession of the real state of the Plas Heaton affairs or you would see at once the utter impossibility of retaining the estate with the most distant chance of reducing it. There will be absolutely no surplus after payment of all the charges - on the contrary I learn from a letter of John's founded on a statement sent him by Charles that there will be a charge in excess amounting to something like £20 pr annum--"

79 ND, not signed
He is sorry to learn from the Archdeacon that he made a mistake in the clause in the inclosed paper of fees The new burial ground is put on the same footing as the present. A space of ground for a vault can only be legally obtained by a faculty which is a very costly process, the Archdeacon recommends that they should be content with a verbal understanding, so How has marked the place selected for (Lovett) and his uncle.
He is sorry that the fever is increasing here
80 16 September 1886
Signed William Walsham Bedford
He is sorry he left Shropshire without getting to Belmont "but it is a good way from Pradoe and they are not great in the stable department". He takes off his hat to Margaret as a most successful authoress, he has read part of her book, enough to show "that it is capitally done, the style being first-rate, full of spirit and idiom and not a but like a translation"
He is going to send a little book of his own verses
81 7 June 1889
Signed William Walsham Wakefield
Had Lovett's wife lived, she would have yielded her wishes to the boy's own spontaneous desire and decision to enter the church - How recommends Trinity Cambridge and Leeds Theological College "These Leeds men make the best parsons I know and come away ten times as fit for their work as when the enter the "Clergy School"-- They only take University men".
