Mr Mulcaster.                       				Farnacres 3rd June 1775

       I have reced your Letter of the 1st and in answer thereto take the first opportunity of acquainting you that the Slag Smelting must be got forward with as well as you can after the old Ore is Smelted, til all the old Slags of every sort are finished.  The Bellows I expect every day from London but the Wind has been unfavourable for some days past which keeps them back.   The Hearth Stones will I believe be ready for the Carriers on Friday but I think of not sending them then unless the Bellows arrives by that time.  I wrote you by Tuesdays Post which as you take no notice of I doubt you have not received; it was to desire that none but good Bricks may be used for the new Mill.    I am

 	Your hble Servt

               	N W Junr 

PS. I shall probably be with you at the Mill about the beginning of the Week after next but shall not set out til I hear the old Ore is finished.  You are desired to forward the inclosed.
