To John Ibbetson Esqr. Farnacres 17th. Novr. 1776 Sir When last at Langley Lead Mill, we had an application made to us by Mr Mulcaster the Lead Mill Agent on behalf of himself and the Workmen who enjoy the Small Farms there, that they might be permitted to plow out little Parcels of Ground from time to time, for the better improvement thereof; and desiring we would recommend it to the Commissioners and Governors of the Hospital, to grant their request and also that a Small Barn should be erected at the Expence of the Hospital, for the use of those Farms: which as an encouragement to the Work at Langley Mill, and to the present occupiers, we cannot hesitate to recommend being agreed to by the Board. The Expence of the Barn exclusive of Carriage (which we think ought to be born by Mr Mulcaster and the Workmen) we estimate at the Sum of £25. We are Sir your’s &c NW Junr. JS.
