Mr Mulcaster. Farnacres 2nd January 1773 I was very much concerned when I read your Letter of the 30th Ult. giving an Account of the untimely death of Thomas Brown. It will be certainly necessary immediately to acquaint the Family with his engagements to us and I doubt not they will fulfil them but I have some fears as well as you that we may be worse off than when Thomas was living. When you acquaint the Family with the Agreement made for the Carriage of the Stones for the Walls you must take notice that you suppose they know we have taken the Ground near the Mill for the Smelters etc and let me have their answer. It is lucky we have this Agreement in Writing and it will be proper for you to tell them we have. Pray do not spare to give your best advice to the Boys. When the Stock is compleated I shall like to have it as soon as your convenience will permit. I am Your very hble Servt N W Junr PS. The Bullion Weighed 651 Ounces and it is as fine a piece as I ever saw. The piece they took off at Stanhope I thought looked very ill; I saw it at the Silver Smiths. Let me know whether Thomas Brown has made a Will or not, I suppose he has not made one.
