The document begins by reciting that a 99 year lease on property in Swinton, Yorkshire, was granted by the Earl Fitzwilliam to Joseph Bower in 1880. The lease on part of this property is now being assigned to Henry and Frank Riley-Smith for 1900.

The property consists of 4 houses with shops (one of which is an off-licence) on a plot on the North side of the main road from Swinton to Doncaster. There is an intended new road immediately to the East of the plot.

Note that Henry and Frank Riley-Smith are in partnership as Brewers at Tadcaster trading as "John Smith".
