Mr Mulcaster.                        			Farnacres 14th June 1774

       I understand the Lead Carriers West of Hexham have considerable Stocks of Lead in Hand & that they require the Hexham Carriers to come and fetch it from them without allowing any thing to the Hexham Carriers to Hexham.   Let that matter be as it may among them it certainly is not proper that the Lead should lie and therefore I desire you will it deliver Lead to any except the Hexham Carriers including Mr Bell of the Highshield and such Carriers as are to the East of Hexham til every Pig now in the Hands of the Carriers West of Hexham shall be carried as far as Hexham at least and then take further directions from Mr Smeaton & myself.

        I am Yr hble Servt

PS We would not have any more Silver taken off til the middle of July or perhaps a few days later
