To Mr Mulcaster 						Farnacres 30th. Augt. 1776

Mr. Mulcaster

      Inclosed you have the pticulars of your Accot. which I doubt not you will find right and the Cash is now right within one penny or rather within ¾ as you’ll remember I won a farthing of Mr Hilton.

      Pray desire the Carriers to be as expeditious in getting the Lead to the Warehouse as possible

	I shall be glad to hear from you and am in great hurry

		Yours &c NW Junr.

PS  I desire you’ll be endeavouring to find out some good Workmen to undertake the Building of a Wall between the Mill and Thos Falls Ground and so as to inclose the parcel of Ground as set out by me some time since for a fatting pasture for Sheep & let me know how much you find it can be done for p[er] Rood to turn Sheep effectually including Carriage & all expences.   I wish to have the Wall very well done.

	Corbet & Johnson being agreed you’ll let them have lead as usual till further orders.
