Milne discusses "making enquiry for a party" and suggests "Cooper might assist" and Hacker & Allen could also make enquiries. He goes on to state" The party, whoever he may be, must have firmness and determination  in dealing with Henry and I fear that Harriet must be dismissed. Ellen would, I hope, not object, for really she would not have any interference with her duties", He asks for a "line by return, to say whether I shall see the Master, at once".  The third part of a letter starts  "not at all sure that Sir W. Hood might not have heard something in Leek, because he said that he had made a mild report. Be this as it may, I am sure  that you agree with me that what is necessary to be done to keep us all right, must be done, even though some temporary trouble may be occasioned to Mr P.  It would be but temporary I believe, whatever the extent of the change might be, and the frightful felling which he now has of being murdered, cannot be aggravated by the most complete change in the establishment. Ellen might  not object to stay, and if Henry and Harriet were dismissed, although such a person as Sir W. Hood suggests were found.   You and I are bound, I think, at all hazards to try to put an end to the present awful position of the household"
