Mr Mulcaster

      Since writing to you on the other part of this half Sheet I have reced. your Letter of the 3d with the Lead Carriage Accot. which puts me in mind of a Pig of Lead of Eight Stone yet at the Mill & I desire the Operation may rest, as also the Pig of Lead, ‘till I see you abt. both, but you may make out the Operation in your own way, without taking notice of the <lost Pig/s>.   What is proposed as to John Friend is right, but I think it is a pity he shd. take a Journey to inform <us/me> as to Facts, and have occasion to go back again to know whether what he had to say was fact or not.   The circumstances you mention as to the White Craig Stones are very agreeable to us, & I do not think you need wish you had not sent to the Man who has the White Craig Quarry on any other account than that of the trouble there has been to you in writing and sending to him.  It will be undoubtedly right to make use of our own Stones while we can make them answer.  You will therefore proceed accordingly.   I am

      Your Humble Servt

      Nich Walton Junr.
