To Mr Peter Mulcaster				Farnacres 16th April 1776


Mr Mulcaster

      I have rece’d yours of the 11th and am exceedingly concerned when you inform me of the ill state of health of the three Workmen you mention & heartily wish them a Speedy recovery but as I expect to be called into the South on the Hospal’s Duty for some days probably not less than fourteen I must beg you will do what you in your own judgment shall think proper by way of supplying any deficiency which may be occasioned by those Workmen being prevented doing their duty and in Case of Death, which I shd be sorry for you will yourself appoint such Successors as you judge Proper.   I am in the Utmost haste

      Yours &c NW Junr.
