Mr Mulcaster.                      			Farnacres 5th April 1773

       I have just got your Letter of the 3rd and in answer desire you will get every thing that relates the old Ore, that is, the Ore now got in, (Greengill excepted which I would have you do with as you propose) as much compleated as possible by the first of May and every expence relative thereto must be included in the Pay Bill.

       I will write to Brown's people about the Corn. 

       The Assays show that all the Lead is Refineable even the Black Slag but that is barely so however I wd have it refined.

       Am glad the Weather is so favourable and that you get so well on with the Lead Carriage.           I am your hble Servt
