Mr Mulcaster.                               		Farnacres 6 Febry 1774

       We duly reced your Letters of the 26th Decemr and 10th 19th 26th & 31 st Ulto.

       The Cake of Bullion last sent fro the Mill weighed 684 Ounces which is just 21 Oz 12 Dw short of the Assay.

       Your Operations with the alterations which have pointed out will now be exactly right.

       The Acct of Materials has not yet been examined but we doubt not its being right in every way particular.

       We were much concerned to hear of poor Liddle being so ill but we are happy in hearing by Mr Hilton that he is in a likely way of getting soon well again. 

       If George Glenwright has an intention of offering to take any Colleries in your neighbourhood pray tell him he is at full liberty to do so and the sooner you do this it will be more agreable to us.

       Yesterday we sent you Eighty Pounds by Mr Jos Hilton which hope you will receive safe by him.

       This day is a strong Thaw and we shall be glad to hear it is so with you.

       We shall be glad to receive a Cake of Bullion by Fridays Carriers of the 18th inst.   We are

               Your hble Servts

               	N W Junr   JS
