Mr Mulcaster							Farnacres 13th March 1772 

      If you have not smelted the Waste Ore and other refuse reced from Nenthead Smelting Mill before you receive this Letter I desire it may not be Smelted til after the ending of the Acct up in the 25th of April because it would otherwise not agree with the Accounts of last year none of which take notice of it and we do not chuse to have any thing Smelted til after the 23rd of April but what belongs to last years Account and if even it should be Smelted I would have you take no notice of it in any of your Operation or Pay Bill but let it come in after the 26th of April.
