Mr John Salter. 						Farnacres. 22nd August 1769

Dear Sir

      This days Post brought me your obliging favor of the 19th instant informing that you had sent 50 Casks of Bone Ashes on Board of the Choice, and desiring to know how many more will be wanted in answer. I take the earliest opportunity of acquainting you, that we wish to receive 50 Casks more, and the sooner they come the better as the roads to our Lead Mill soon break up, and are very bad afterwards. Those now desired will make up the whole Quantity for this year. 150 Casks being the Number you wrote Mr, Smeaton and me you had bespoke upon the 16th May last. I am

      Dear Sir Your much Obliged & most Obed. Servt.

      NW Junr.
