Mr Mulcaster. Farnacres 6 June 1775 This day I sent Mr Stevenson to Newburn and Hexham to enquire in what state the Lead Carriers were as to quantities of Lead in Hand and find there is so much at Newburm and Hexham that it will be impossible to have all in without giving another Week I shall therefore defer coming to the Mill til Sunday the 18th inst in the Evening shall stay there til Tuesday Evening following and make the Lead Carriers & Mill Pays on Wednesday and Thursday the 21& 22ins Lead Carriers to be paid on the Wednesday. You will therefore give directions for the Lead being all got in [underlined: ‘as soon as possible’] and let Mr Hilton know he must be at the Mill on Sunday the 18 instant instead of Monday the 12th inst. I hear there is a Letter from you by this days Post but I have not yet reced it. I am Your hble Servt N W Junr PS. Ions says he never had notice to get the Lead in from Newburn to Newcastle, if it is so, there certainly was a mistake in not acquainting him.
