Mr Mulcaster							Farnacres 13th December 1771

      The Evening after I wrote you last viz the 10th inst I reced your Letter of the 9th and think it will be proper to agree wth John Davidson to do the Work, upon the Terms you mention as I realy think the price is, tho sufficient, not too much to have all finished as it ought to be; and I desire youll lose no time in getting an Agreement made for there will certainly be a scarcity of Workmen on Account of the great damages by the Flood. I am sorry for the accident which has befallen Thomas Brown but I hope with care he may soon do well again. I think William Pattison had best be agreed with for leading the Stones. Dont report the Lead you deliver him in the Operations til the Carriage begins again but he must Sign the Book as usual. I am Your most Hble Servt
