To Mr. Mulcaster					Farnacres 1st March 1776.

Mr. Mulcaster

      I have recd. your Letters of the 21st & 24th ulto. and duly observe their Contents.

	With regard to what you Propose I have, so farr from objecting, a wish that you shou’d Try the method you propose as to the Bellows and of your employing any Person you think most proper in making this or any other alteration you Judge necessary, but the New Pipe Stone shd. certainly be Tryed before you make any alteration in the Pipe of the Bellows.

	As to the shifting the Men, knowing our sentiments about it, you will do the best you can.

	I am glad to hear Thomas Elliot is better than he was.

	I have not heard from Newcastle this Morning so cannot tell you whether the Silver is arrived or not as to the accident you mention relative to it we must make ourselves Content and hope nothing of the kind will happen again.

	I wrote you on the 23rd to which I referr and in addition thereto, desire you’l not cut the broken Quicks yet & the Walling having been hurt by a very extraordinary fall of Snow you will get it compleatly repaired at the Hospitals Expence.   I am      Your Humble Servt.

	N. Walton Junr.
