Mr Mulcaster.                          				Farnacres 27th January 1775


       We duly reced your favor of the 25th by your Brother this morning and approve of what you have done with respect to the taking Joseph Rodham as from what your Brother and you have said of him he appears likely to answer for us.

       It gives us pleasure to hear J Wilkinson gains strength and Spirits and we are glad Robinson is got together again.

       In your first Letter pray let us know what lengths breadth and thickness would suit best for Test Reins & whether Hard or Soft Iron is best.

       This morning it has rained and is now a fine fresh Weather day.

       Your Brother and Nephew are gone up to Ravensworth Castle along with Mr Walton Snr and your Nephew is expected back again in abt 14 days to remain.

       We are  Your hble Servts

      W & S
