Mr Mulcaster.                                			Farnacres 6th June 1773

       I have reced your Letter of the 4th instant and duely note the contents which are very full respecting the matter of the Smelting Wages.  Mr Smeaton and I shall be together before the end of the present Month and we will then consider and determine upon what appears most proper upon the occasion.

       Though you cannot come at it exactly I should be glad if you would give some kind of guess what the Hedging will cost P Rood.  If you should be out in your calculation I shall certainly excuse it because I know you will do according to the best of your judgement.

       Mr Bell has directions to let you have Wood for Gates from Dinnetley but he will not be able to set it out til after the 13th inst.

       You may take down the Boring Geer when you will and I must desire you will if you can send me the particulars of what you have expended on account of the Boring as also the Receipts you have taken by Mr Chrisr Bell who I expect will be here on Wednesday or Thursday and I will send you a Recet by him for the amount of the Money expended.  We cannot settle with Mr Rawling til we have this Account and Vouchers.

       I am  Your very hble Servt

 		N W Junr 

PS. Pray enquire of Mr Hilton what Quantity of Ore he expects we may get from Browneyhill and Guddamgill burn cross Vein this Summer, as I remember he told me he expected that Ore would be very good to run.
