To Mr Peter Mulcaster Farnacres 2d Novemr 1776 Mr Mulcaster We have reced yr. Letter of the 31st Ulto. and in Truth are very sincerely concerned for the Uneasyness that you have had, but most cordially hope you will very soon get well again, and beg you will not hesitate a Moment to come to NewCastle to get the best Advice if you see it in the very least Degree necessary or proper. What you are doing about the Quarries is perfectly right and we think Willm. Howden acts prudently. It will not be in the Power of either of us to be wth. you before the Ore Carriers Pay, but that Day, shall be glad to have some Talk about making an Agreement for some Part of the Wall at least. The Lead Mill Pay we shall let alone ‘til the Years Work is finished. Pray be so good as ask Thomas Fall what he will give p[er] Acre for the remaining Part of his Term for the little Piece of Ground Part of Ann Browns Farm joining the Brick Garth which we talked of fencing off the last time we were at the Mill, & accordingly measured the Length of the Fence joining Mr. Fall’s Pasture, & let us know; and after you have done so, ask Mrs. Brown the lowest Price she sets upon that Piece of Ground p[er] Acre for the Remainder of her Term and at the same time it would not be amiss to acquaint her that we think her very stiff wth. us considering the great Advantages she has by being constantly employed on all Occasions by Greenwich Hospital & let us know her Determination We are &c W & S P.S. We wish to be informed about the above as soon as possible & if you can get Mr. Fall & Mrs. Brown to make their Offers in Writing it would be well.
