Mr Mulcaster. Farnacres 27th February 1775 I have reced your Letter of the 25th and observe its contents. The Bellows I would not have clouted on any Account and therefore desire that method may be laid aside and I beg they may be done in the most effectual manner as the extra expence cannot possibly be an object to prevent that. I wish you or Mr Bell had asked Bill Brown who he saw after he was with Mary Blenkinsop and who knew of his being at Cold Rowley all Night; for as he came to exculpate himself, he gave the best opportunity without giving him the least offence of being asked every question which might lead to a discovery or absolutely to clear him & I do think, in consequence of what he has said, that some enquiry should be made he cannot possibly take it amiss for he has put us upon doing it; but that may be let alone til I come up without you think any thing can be better done before that time, for I cannot be with you sooner than Thursday about one or two o' Clock in the Afternoon and it is more probable I think that I shall not get to the Mill sooner than Friday morning or at two Afternoon at farthest. You will want Iron for the Barrelling and that should be sent for to Newcastle as soon as possible. I have mentioned this to W Laybourne. I am Your real well wisher N W Junr PS. Pray forward the inclosed as it is desiring Mr Hilton to meet me at the Mil, and the sooner he gets it the better.
