Mr Mulcaster                                   		Farnacres 21st Decemr 1773

       The Bullion weighed 781 1/2 Ounces and I have filled up the Blank in the Operation agreable thereto.

       In examining the Operation ending the 27th Ult I find the following apparent errors the latter I am clear is one & most probably the former.

The Stock of Refineable Slag Lead Oper.n ending 16 Octr is       162

Produced as P Operation ending the 27 November                   101

     You have the Stock 27 Novr 371 should be                    263

The Stock of Litharge saved for Refining Oper ending 16 Octd 35.2.23

Produced, or saved, as P Operation ending the 27 Novemr       8.  17

     You have yr Stock 27 Nov 33.3.12 should be              43.3.12

you will let me hear from you about the above at your convenience.

       I am Your hble Servt

       N W Junr 

PS As I hear the Robsons all like hunting I beg you will give such of them as come in your way a strong caution to avoid that practice.
