Mr Mulcaster Farnacres 1st March 1772 The Bullion came safe to hand and weighed 501 3/4 Ounces. It looked well and is I dare say quite fine. I have not yet tryed it by the Assay. This day is frosty but the finest one by farr that we have had those Six Weeks. There has not been so bad a Season since the famous year 1739/40. We have no snow lying now. We shall certainly make a Lead Mill Pay some time about the latter end of April or beginning of May and we wish to have the Slags etc as much worked up as possible before the ending of the Acct. I am for Mr Smeaton & Self Your hble Servt N W Junr PS Pray order the Lead remaining to be got in with all possible dispatch as I shall make a Lead Pay as soon as the carriage is finished. I observe your loss is better than 1/11th & an half the last operation as mentioned in your Letter of the 15th Ult.
