Mr Mulcaster							Farnacres 20th March 1772

      As I think we cannot fail of having every thing ready by Wednesday the 1st of April to make the Lead Carriers Pay I desire youll give notice immediately to all the Carriers to be at the Golden Lion in Hexham early in the morning of that day,that is by Eight o'Clock.  It will be necessary that all the Lead should be delivered in by Friday the 27th instant because you know we ought to have a few days before the Pay to settle every thing and compare our Accounts at Newcastle with the Delivery from the Mill and this cannot be done properly til all the Lead is brought to Newcastle.   I am 

             Your hble Servt

             		N W Junr
