Messrs. Mulcaster

      I yesterday sent to NewCastle for the Medicine for Thos. Robson which, having just reced, I send by James Johnsons Man with directions that it may be forwarded at the first Opportunity to Langley Mill.   I need not give you any further Directions than you will find in the <above> Recipe and upon the Bo<x>es.  I wish success to the operation, and doubt not Thomas will be cured if he takes the Medicine according to Directions.

	I am much obliged by your care of the Packet which I have reced safe.

      No Directions can yet be given concerning the carriage of the Lead.

Having read over the Memorandums given me <at> Langley Mill and having considered the several Proposals for the walling of the <Home> Pastures I think it will certainly be right to agree with Wm. Pattinson for the winning & leading and with regard to the walling you are desired to make the best agreement you can so as to have the whole well done.

	I have ordered 120 Common 1 ΒΌ Inch Deals but shall not order any <fine> Deals <till>

<further>  At all times in future I desire you will set down the lengths of the Deals as well as the sort and thickness.   The Laths & Nails I have also ordered.   I suppose the <..> Nails are for nailing on the plaistering Laths.   We <call> them Lathing Tackets but I hope they will come right.   I have desired Mr. Harvey to send 30 8 & 9 ft. Deals <out> of the 120 & the remainder to be 11 & 12 fts.
