Mr. Mulcaster. Farnacres 3rd June 1770 Your letter of the 29th Ult I received on Friday last and in answer take the first opportunity of informing you that I think it will be most convenient in every respect to go in with the Unrefineable Ore til you see the contrary. We have never had a right Tryal made of Old Cowslitts Ore whether it will refine or not, I suppose it will not but it will certainly be right to give it a full Tryal when we have plenty of Ore of that sort to Work by itself. I am glad to hear you have got the Reducing Furnace Bottom so well done and hope the Labour and Expence will soon be repaid by an Extra Produce. As to the Stamp Mill it must be Worked at times when the Refinery is not at Work til we see it and in agreeing with the Workmen about the Slags as we have no doubt of your utmost care, that is left to yourself to make the best bargain you can. I wish to receive the Accts to finishing last years Ore and some kind of Estimate what may be expected from the Hearth Ends Ore Tails Slags etc - but I desire (tho I should like to have it soon) that you will not put yourself to any inconvenience or neglect any other Work on Account of this. It is likely you will not see us til July or the beginning of August. I am Your Hble Serv. N. Walton Junr.
