To Mr Mulcaster							Farnacres 4th Oct 1776

Mr. Mulcaster

      I have reced your Letter of the 2d inst. but as I am much straitned for Time cannot conveniently send you a form of an Agreement, I must however in general tell you that it should set forth the dimensions of the Wall and that it is to be done in a substantial & workmanlike manner to the satisfaction of the receivers of the Derwentwater Estate or such Person or Persons as they shall appoint & as to the rest I dare say you’ll have no difficulty in doing it very well.

	The Lead being short 19 or 20 pieces I cannot give directions to set the Carriage on ‘till the mistake is set right.

	I should be glad to have an accot. of the Sorts of Lead which make up the 1<8>08 last sent from the Mill and to whom delivered.   I am

	yours &c

		NW Junr.

PS you have given me an Accot. of the sorts of Lead as follows.
