Mr Mulcaster                                    			Farnacres 4th September 1773

       All the Lead being come in I intend to make a Lead Carriers Pay on Wednesday the 15th instant of which I desire youll give immediate notice.

       By mistake the 50 Casks of Bone Ashes were sent to Newburn 10 of them are for us and 40 for arm Monkhouse.  The sooner our Ten are got to the Mill the better.

       I would have you take off the Silver as you propose at the closing of the Account.   The Account for the Pay must end upon the 16th of October and I would have your Operation to take in from the 28th August to the 16th October.  The Mill Pay is to be upon the 27th of October and we shall be at the Mill on the 22nd in the Evening and stay there til Sunday the 24th in the Evening.

       The Hedging had best be paid for when we make the Lead Carriers Pay so you will take care to have all ready.

       The Hedging on both sides of the Lane from the Holm to the Fell I would have in a separate Note or Notes.

       When I make the Lead Carriers Pay I will give you directions what to do about Wm Brown or speak to him myself as I suppose he will be at the Pay on acct of the Hedging.

               I am your hble Servt

               	N W Junr

PS Mr Hilton will level the Ground you mention.
