Mr Mulcaster

       We have reced yours if the 25 inst and duly note its Contents.   We observe the 11s/8d was paid in June last, the Papers we returned you, it is supposed had got intermixed with ours when we were last with you.  We are concerned John Friend did not meet with Encouragement when at Newcastle but hope after all he may get well again.   If he thinks the Exercise will be of use to him, it will be agreable to us he shd attend you when you come for the Cash, but notwithstanding that, think it may be very proper for Mr Thornton also to be with you.   We will send you the Form of a Pay Bill the first Opportunity which will show you the Prices at which the Carriage ought to be charged.

       What you observe as to the Garden Wall is proper and will answer the end and you had best agree with John Robson to lead to Forsters Wall at 18d P Rood.  We have no objection to what is proposed with respect to Geo. Robinsons Field.  With regard to the Level we are so clearly of Geo. Temperley's Opinion that we beg he will use his own Discretion in letting the next Length and not make any Allowance for a hard Bargain in the last, and in case any of the men appear to be unreasonable in their Demands, it will be perfectly agreable to us that they shd be discharged and others employed in their stead.     We are

       Your humble Servants

      Walton & Turner
