Mr Mulcaster. 							Farnacres 13th June 1769

      Your Letters of the 6th & 9th instant are now before me and in answer to that part relating the Bingsteads I must desire youll get them fixed so as in your Opinion will be most convenient and answer the end best.

      I have not yet had time to look into the Mill Accounts.

      As to Marmaduke Forest I think it is nonsense to try him further where his ignorance is so manifest and I desire nothing more may be done as to the Litharge Slags and Test Bottoms til you gave further Orders which will be in about a Week.

      The Hedge on the East side of the Mill you must fix and set out on such Ground as you see most proper taking in some more Ground than first proposed. I am

             Your Hble Serv.


P.S. Your Sealing Wax is so bad that your Letters come open sometimes. I send you two sticks.

              Pray send the inclosed Letter forward by the very first careful Carriers with a strict Charge to deliver it as soon as possible to Mr Joseph Hilton.
