Mr Mulcaster							Farnacres 15th Decemr 1772

      I intend making the Lead Carriers Pay on Monday the 21st instant and also the Ore Carriers & desire youll give immediate notice to both.

      There is no occasion for Thomas Brown to trouble himself further about the Recets for the Lead.

      I fear we shall fall somewhat short.

      When I come to Hexham I shall talk with you about the other matters contained in your Letters from the 5th to the 8th inclus. not having at present time to say more.  I am

      your hble Servt

      N W Junr

PS.    There is none of the West Country (that is Carlisle & Haltwhistle) Carriers that we shall want to see at the Pay but Rowland Smith.

A two year community project, it was led by the Friends of the North Pennines in partnership with Hexhamshire and Slaley Parish Councils and the active support of Allendale Estates. It was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the generous support of other sponsors. Friends of the North Pennines: Charity No:1137467
