Mr Mulcaster. 							Farnacres 20th August 1769

      I am glad to hear you have got the Chimneys finished and that you have reced. the Silver Scales Safe as I am also that you have got to Work up in the Unrefineable Ore which you must continue til further order. Dont take off the Silver yet as the Quantity of Lead is so very small, unless you think or find it will be more convenient to do so than otherwise in which case I would have you keep the piece of Silver at your own House or perhaps it may be as well to put it in a little Box and send it to Mr Bells to lie there til another Piece is taken off when they may be Posted together and sent down to Newcastle by the Carrier, any way will be agreable that you see right.

      I very much approve of removing the Tails and Hearth Ends to the place you mention. I am Your Hble Servt
