Mr Mulcaster.                              			Farnacres 12th Nov 1774

       We have received your Letter of the 9th inst and with it the Operation for last Month & Mr Smeaton's Cork.

       What you have done as to the engaging Wm Brown and Robt Telford is what we approve and as to Thomas Robsons blusters they only show that we judge right in having no connection with him at Langley Mill.  If you see him you may tell him that Greenwich Hospital will defend the enjoyment of the Ground now occupied along with, and for the use of the Persons employed at Langley Mill, against him and every other Person whatever.  As to Bill Brown's Wife she is not to be minded.

       After the Mill is cleared dont deliver any more Lead til further orders.

       We are Your hble Servts

       W & S

PS.  Thos Robson is very ungrateful as he has been used with great tenderness we now find he has ill deserved such treatment.   If he offers to pull down the Inclosures he must be discharged & let us know immediately, but we do not expect he will be so imprudent.
