Messrs Mulcaster						Farnacres 30th Augt 1782

      As I propose being at Langley Mill so soon I will let alone making the Alterations in the Operations till then & I desire to receive the Operation for the present Month by this day Sennt.  I am glad any time is fixed for the finishing of the Rooms & I hope all will be compleated against I come on the 15th of next Month.   It will be very proper to keep constant Fires in the Rooms & till we get fenders <&c> make use of Bricks set edgewise upon the Slabs.   The State of the Tillage Acct. is come to hand.   We have exceeding terrible Weather.   Yesterday Thunder Lightening and Rain & Hail in great abundance.  Many Crops of <fine> Meadows entirely spoiled.   What you have done as to Lowes is approved.   I am sorry to see the Ore Carriage gone on so slowly & suppose the Bad Weather is the cause.   If you will want any Money on Acct. let me know & I will bring it with me.

      I am Yr Hble Servt

      Nich Walton Junr.

PS We have desired Mr Rewcastle to call upon you for some Sheet Lead for Lowbyer House & desire you will assist him in getting it properly cast as soon as he knows what will be wanted.
