To Mr Peter Mulcaster.                           			Farnacres 2d April 1779

Mr Mulcaster

      I have yours of the 29th Ulto and the Operation for last Month now before me and having examined the latter find it right.   I am perfectly satisfied with your havg. made out the Operation and with what you propose respecting the Old and the New Works.

      I wish I could speak so fully to you about the Fencing but not having yet had orders respecting the Setting I cannot do more than say that I am confident it is not the intention of the Commissioners of Greenwich Hospital that any of the Tenants  sh. continue another Year except on New Terms and that I expect every day to hear from London you must therefore do the best you can 'til we can be more explicit.  I am 

           Yours etc

      N W Junr

PS  You'll see I mean to be at Hexham on Tuesday.
