1807 Request to transport manure

From Peter Daniell to William Lambert White


Clearly one of the most unusual items in my collection, this is a brief note from Peter Daniell of Pen House, to his neighbour, Yeovil solicitor William Lambert White, requesting permission to transport manure across the land of the latter.



Will Mr White have the goodness to permit Mr Daniell to draw some manure across Pen Hill to his field called Pen Linches.
20th Oct 1807
