Mr Mulcaster.    						Farnacres 6th Decemr 1780

      We have received yours of the 1st inst with the Operations which we doubt not are now right.   We are clearly of Opinion that you have detected the Error as to Blagill Ore delivery so clearly that Company ought to admit your Account of last year and also make up the deficiency of the 2Cwt and we will look sharp to that when the Ore Accounts of this Year are settled.  We have no wish to have the Thortergill Syke Ore Tails washed separately.  We are glad to hear the Bone Ashes are some of them arrived and hope to receive the Silver by the Friday's Carrier of this Week.

      We are Your Humble Servants

      Walton & Turner

PS. The Assays I have not yet had time to Weigh.
