Mr Mulcaster. 								Farnacres. 24th June 1770

      The Lead Mill Pay will be on the 29th October being a Monday and the day following we shall pay the Lead Carriers.

      I have Ordered 100 Casks of Bone Ashes and expect to receive them before Winter some time.

      I doubt we can scarce depend upon our present Carriers to take off our whole Quantity; indeed they seem determined to try whether we can make use of the Hospitals Interest with the Tenants or not.  If we make that Experiment, some Carriers will wish they had asked otherwise and it seems likely we shall try it very soon.

      It gives me pleasure to hear our Workmen are to your Satisfaction, and that they themselves like their Employ, while they behave well they may depend upon every reasonable Encouragement.  I am for self and Mr Smeaton

      Your Hble Servt

             	N Walton Junr

PS.    Pray forward the enclosed by some very carful hand, there is no need of a Special Messenger, but I wish it to be delivered as soon as convenience will permit.

 You must send nothing soon but GHO
