Mr Mulcaster.                                					Farnacres 10th June 1770

      I have tryed the Assays, and the piece of Silver Answers exceedingly well to them, but this Cake, as well as the last, falls considerably Short in Quantity pFodder, compared with former Operations. We can however expect no more than the Lead itself will afford, and as the Quantity of Silver answers the Assays we must rest assured that the Work has been properly done.

      I think you are very right in taking no Notice of the Stamp Mill in your Account. I am

      Your Hble Servt.

      N Walton Junr.
