Fr Davidson to Bishop: Buying land; future of Leiston; space for another priest

Wants to buy a plot of land, but need the Diocese to advance the money. Looking to the future of Leiston - presently unsatisfactory being out of the way on an unadopted road. No news about another room being built on the side of the presbytery - could put an elderly priest there to help in the exhausting, and unsatisfactory, work running Aldebergh-Leiston parish.
Manuscript Annotation: "Plot of land. 60'x250'(frontage 60') opposite Rly. Station belong to Warlock. Price £100 but [?] probably a reasonable price as they have no more use for it. Thought project of room to be at Ald. was to find funds[?]. Better find out what they mean of 'a reasonable price'. Oct 20/28."
