Messrs. Mulcaster						Farnacres 14th July 1782	

      Yours of the 11th. inst came safe to hand and the Silver which weighs 667 Ounces was yesterday sent for London.

	The Price of Lead is now £17.5 Refined p[er] Fodder and Silver now sells at 6s/2d p[er] Ounce but I find is rather expected to fall.

	Whenever it is convenient to you we shall be glad to receive an Acct. of the produce of Refined Lead for last Operation as also the Assays, but are in no Hurry.

	When Mr. Thornton was here, we gave him Directions to go with you and a Carpenter into Dinnitley Wood to mark such Trees as will suit your present occasion, and desired that he would [struck out: ‘immediately’] take them down that you might be accommodated, and we will settle the prices which you are to pay the first time we come to Langley Mill which it is expected will be about the 10th. of August.   We are

      Your Hble Servts.

      Walton & Turner.

PS We hope the two Rooms will be compleated before we come to the Mill as farr as they can be for you know the Floors must be afterwards relaid
