Mr Mulcaster. 							Farnacres 25th September 1770

      I have sent you (or rather desired Wm. Laybourne to pay you) Thirty Pounds and indeed upon considering your Letter on second reading I think I should have sent you One Hundred Pounds for as you have laid out £100 more than you have had on Account you ought to have had that - I desire for the time to come you will always call for Money when you want it as it is at all Times ready for you.

      You must see Mr Bell about the Carriage, as I have wrote him by Mr. Laybourne and you may then consult together, til then follow your last Directions. I am

      Your Hble Servt.

      NW Junr.

PS Neither of the Sorts of Slag Lead you last sent Assays of are Refineable and you may send them to Markett as you find most convenient.
