Mr Mulcaster

       We have reced yours of the 6th inst. What you observe as to the Lead Carriage is entirely agreable to our Sentiments and if on Acct of our Letter respecting the Silver on Friday, the Work has been hurried, we are sorry for it, as all we meant was to receive it then if that could be done with convenience.  We still hope that the Quantity of Ore will be 4200 Bings.

       It gives us pleasure to hear you have discovered the two Brass Weights and Mssrs Landell & Chambers shall be acquainted with the circumstance.

       We observe what you mention respecting the Bells and hope Joseph of Pytroone will behave so as to deserve encouragement & we do the like with respect to the other Joseph Bell.

        What you mention with respect to Carr the Miller we are obliged to you for, & as we may possibly want a Miller, if you can learn his & his Sons Character both as to Honesty and Circumstances, we shd be obliged by your communicating the information you can get the very first Opportunity.          

       We are Your etc

       W & T
