       I beg you will attend in a particular manner to what I read you over in Mr Stevensons Letter Viz the Commissioners desire of our taking every step in our power to discover and bring to Justice the Persons concerned in the atrocious crime at Langley Mill.  It is only because I think it is my Duty that I repeat this thing to you.  I am sure Mr Mulcaster you have everything relating the Mill so much at Heart, that you consider yourself as much engaged in the discovery as a Man can be, and consequently that you will do everything in your power to come at particulars.   I wish every matter for the future to go on in a manner the most agreable to yourself and am

       Yours very truly
