Mr Smeaton.                        			Farnacres 24th February 1775

Dear Brother

       From what is wrote on the other side, you will see the state of our proceedings respecting Langley Mill and I hope in God we shall make a discovery tho' I much doubt it, as I think it is probable only one has been concerned, however that is it is certainly right to offer a great reward.

       The Post Boy is waiting so I must conclude and am with the utmost sincerity

       Your very Affect Brother

                          	N W Junr

PS    As this would be a good opportunity to Barrell the Smelting Mil Axis, I desire you will let me hear from you immediately and give me your Sentiments about this, if you think any thing further is necessary, then what you gave Mr Mulcaster directions alone.
