Mr Mulcaster Farnacres 5th Jany. 1776 I have just now received your Letter of the 2d inst, and think we should rather be put to a very great Inconvenience than recieve assistance from either Mr Wm. J - - n or Wm B - - n the latter in particular, and I do desire that he Brown may be made to understand, that his even coming about the Place I mean Langly Mill, can never be understood as either of the least use or considered as a Civility – when, Mr Mulcaster, we are under a Difficulty, we ought certainly to do the best we can, to relieve ourselves and let us remain in Difficulty I beg of you rather than suppose it likely that we shall benefit by the Proffers of either a Johnson or a Brown but at the same time it is necessary that we should have proper Persons to do our work, and on receiving from you an account, that you are under a Difficulty, and cannot be supplied by offers from proper Workmen I shall think it right to advertise, for I have no Idea of being held under the Thumb of any man, or being obliged by either Johnson or Brown. I am sorry to hear of the accident you mention, as also for the State of poor Wilkinson. I am &ca. N.W. Junr.
