Mr Mulcaster Farnacres 18th January 1772 I reced your Letter of the 13th inst on Wednesday & herein send you an exact Copy of the Stock of Materials at & belonging to Langley Mill. I thought it necessary to do this as a certain way of your having an exact duplicate of what we now have. We have no inducement to alter our method of Smelting Slags and I am glad you can give us so agreable an account of our present Workmen in that way and that they get so well away with the Litharge Slags and Test Bottoms. There is now a most intense Frost here & the River Tyne at Newcastle has been barely passible this day. The Ferry at Newcastle is quite stopped & all will be closed with Ice tomorrow if the Frost continues as it now is. The Snow is about three Inches thick upon a medium. I am for Mr Smeaton & Self Your Hble Servt N W Junr PS Your Letter is dated the 13th January 1771 instead of 1772. In the Accts of Stock you often make use of the words - in all - at the end of the Line, there is no occasion for it & therefore youll ommit them in future.
