Messrs. Mulcaster

      When you were both here we acquainted you that we were apprehensive there might be some small Errors in the Tables for ascertaining the Refineable Lead when compared with the Rise of Lead and Silver at Market.   Having now carefully examined the whole we find the Calculation for the Ore Lead so nearly right that it is not worthwhile to alter the Tables, but with regard to the Slag Lead we found it necessary to make a new Set of Tables and, as far as they are made out, now send you copies and will send you the Remainder on Friday.   The Copies are rather faint and therefore when you write from them they must be laid upon white Paper.

	James Mulcaster is much the same as when we wrote last only that he has got a pain in one of his Legs which is a little swelled, and his Cough is thought rather better.   We are 

      Your Hble Servts.

      Walton & Turner.
