Mr Mulcaster.                                 			Farnacres 5th June 1775

       The Bellows are arrived at Newcastle and I expect you will receive them by Corbett.

       If you want any Iron for the fixing the Treddles etc I desire to know by Fridays Carrier and I shall endeavour to send what you want along with the Cast Iron for the Hearths which will I dare say be ready for the Carrier on Friday morning.

       The Lead I hope will be all at Newburn and Newcastle by the latter end of this Week and the whole at Newcastle by the middle of next Week but indeed it should when I consider this a little further be all at Newcastle by Saturday the 10th at furthest because otherwise I shall not be able to settle the Warehouse Acct before I come to the Mill and consequently would not have it in my power, in such case, to make the Lead Carriers Pay when the Lead Mill Pay is made.

       I propose the Lead Carriers Pay to be on Thursday the 15th and the Lead Mill Pay on Friday the 16th inst and desire you will give notice accordingly, but at the same time I would have you let the Lead Carriers know that they cannot expect to be paid unless they have all in at Newcastle by Saturday next.        I am

       Your hble Servt

            	N W Junr 

PS.  I intend being at the Mill on Tuesday Sennt against Dinner & possibly I may get there the Evening before; but I rather doubt I shall not have time to do that.  I will stay at the Mill til Wednesday Evening the 14th inst.  Give Mr Hilton notice to be at the Mill on Monday Evening the 12th inst
