Messrs. Mulcaster						Farnacres 19th July 1782

      Your Letters of the 12th, 13th and 15th are come to hand as also the Assays and Thomas Temperleys Accounts for two Weeks ending the 13th. Inst, and I have filled up the Blanks in yr Letter of the 11th. agreable to the paper inclosed in yours of the 12th wch. paper I have destroyed.

	I have not had time yet to examine the Assays.

	I am glad you have had such good weather for the Roof of your House & that the Ore comes in better than it did, and hope that will continue; we are also glad to hear Craig is recovering and that Wm Wilson has got a Cow and his other is better again but I am concerned that Robson does not get away with his complaint.   It vexes me much that you had accommodated yourself with Wood I realy had intended to have wrote both to you and Mr Thornton before he came here but in the hurry of busyness forgot it.

	Mr Thornton must find out Wood for Sleepers for the Room at Langley Mill & therefore acquaint him he is to do so and I beg they may be got as soon as it is clearly known what kind of stuff will best suit.   They may be furnished from Esphill or any other of the Hospitals Wood only let the stuff be such as is proper, certainly if the Esphill Wood will do none can come more convenient.

	We are very much obliged to Wm. Armstrong for his Information & I have desired that Bill Hutchinson may view the place & you will hear from him & Jno Friend about this.   We are also obliged to you for your early attention to this busyness.

	Mr Turner & I intend being at the Mill on the 10th. in the Evening & the next day propose dining at Lowbyer or at Alston.   I am      Your Hble Servant

      Nich Walton Junr.

PS when Bill Hutchinson views at Staward Cleugh I desire Thomas Temperley may go with him & you will therefore acquaint him when you know the day.
