To Mr Mulcaster					Farnacres 31st Augst. 1776


Mr Mulcaster

      On examining the whole of the Recets. and Payments at the Lead Mill and Lead Carriers Pay I cannot by any means prove the Cash to be right or wrong save that when compared with what we did at Hexham after the Lead Carriers were paid the Cash is within three farthings but as to what was done afterwards we were in such a Hurry that I can Scarcely remember anything about it.   I desire therefore you will let me know whether I gave you Rectes. for the Lead and old Iron sold by you and for your Rent amounting together to £7.2.- for at present I do not recollect either your paying the Money or my giving you Receipts but apprehend both was done.   I desire you’ll let me hear from you about this as soon as you can, as also that you’ll let me have the Operation to the end of last Years Accot. with a Computation of what may be expected from the Tails &c & expence of bringing the same into Lead.

      I am Yours &c NW. Junr.

PS I inclose you the Lead Mill Pay Bill, all the Lead at Newcastle will be delivered in a few days (except the broken pieces) as we have sold above 4000 Pigs.
