To Mr. Peter Mulcaster					Farnacres 6th Jany. 1779

Mr Mulcaster

      Having examined your Operation ending the 26th Ulto. I find the following Errors.

In the Account of Ore Smelted 

    Greengill West End Bouse  37:4 shd be 37:6

                       Cutting 9:6 shd be  9:4

      Yours of the 4th Instant is this Moment come to hand and the Agreement you have made with Dunwoodie is approved.

      I thank you for the information you have given me respecting the Coals.

      I was fearfull the High Wind would do you damage and am happy you have reced. no more the sooner it is got repaired the better.

      You have given me concern when you acquaint me of your being out of health & I beg you will take care of Your self & not go out about the Walling ‘till you get well again and as soon as your health will permit I shall be glad to see you here but don’t come til you can safely venture.   Mr. Thornton with what you can say to him in the House will be able to judge what the Wall will cost and as to the situation of the Wall you may see it from your own House End & he may go and measure it.   The sooner you come to Farnacres the more agreeable to me.   I am wishing you many happy Years.

      Yours &c

      NW Junr.
