To Peter Mulcaster. 						Farnacres 26th September 1768

Mr Mulcaster

      When the large Beam came from the Mil, I expected the Scale Boards, Chairs & Hooks had accompanied it; but upon enquiry at Newcastle this day, I find they did not: I therefore send this Letter to desire youll take care they come by the very first Hexham Carrier directed by Mr Airey in Newcastle.

 	Pray let me know in your next Letter how much Lead is delivered at Newcastle.

      The large Beam instead of being made better by Isley was realy rendered quite useless so that we have been Obliged to get it altered and adjusted here. I shall be glad to hear you get well on at the Mill, and am for P'tner & Self,

             Sir Your Frd & Servt.

      Nich. Walton Jun.
