Mr Mulcaster.                          		 Farnacres 20th June 1773

       I have just time to tell you that all the Assays you sent last turn out to be Refineable, but if it had been otherwise and supposing that Guddamgill Burn Cross Vein was a flux for Middle Cleugh, yet it might have been worth while to have mixed them because of the difference of produce occasioned by the mixture.

       What you have done about the Hedging I much approve and also of what you propose in your attention to that matter, and what you have determined as to the Bone Ashes is agreable to what we had before fixed; you must remember we never intended that Corbett or Johnson should have any Carriage of the kind after their misconduct and they only smuggled their last Cargo; it is even a matter of consideration whether they ought not to be punished for their improper behaviour upon the occasion.

       I am Your hble Servt
