To Mr. Peter Mulcaster			Farnacres 15th. Decr. 1776


Mr Mulcaster

      I have reced yours of the 11th. Inst: and on examining the Weight of the Cakes of Bullion find they are as follows according to our Weighings Vizt.

Weighed by N.W. Junr. – That taken off 5th Octor.– 750 1/2

               Weighed by Mr. Farrer – 6th Novr. - 720

                                      30th Novr. - 657

	The Proposal of Wm. Pattinson I desire may be concluded and when I see you we will fix whether the Wall is to be set upon the Road or not.

	I am sorry to find the Leading meets with Difficulty, a Frost wd. be of use; but in case of our seeing anybody has a hard bargain we must make Allowances, this shd. however be tenderly touched upon.

	The Deuce is in the Quarries near Langley Mill to be sure for they no sooner any of them flatter us with a good prospect but in an instant leave us in the Dark to seek out for others.   The best we can do is all that will be expected & we shd. not fret.

	You have had and will have a good deal of Trouble about those Walls & you shall certainly be considered for it.

	I shall be very glad to see you at the Time you mention.   I am

      your &c N.W. Junr.
