Mr Mulcaster                                     			Farnacres 14  Nov 1775

       I have looked into the last Operation and return it and I have altered Middle Cleugh and Cash Burn which makes them right and all the rest mark'd, V, are right, that is they agree with Mr Hiltons Account.  The Total Account 4688.4 also agrees with Mr Hiltons Account, but those unmarked you will examine and let me know the Errors and I will correct the Operations myself Viz Thorngill West End, Brownly Hill, Greengill West End, Greengill N. String, Thorngill East End, Windybrow, Brigal Burn, Carrs, Browngill Sun Vein, Thortergill Syke, Greengill Hush, Brownleyhill N String, Shawfoot & Nenthead Field North Vein.   All those from Viz I believe to be wrong

       I am Your hble Servt

       N W Junr PS

I also send you a Copy of Mr Hiltons Account in which thou marked VV agree with your Account as now altered and the others your Operations do not agree with.
