Mr Mulcaster 							Farnacres 6th March 1772 

      I reced your Letter of the 21st instant and have since examined the Operation which I find right.

      Where Contractors have hard bargains it is right to make allowances and if it should appear in that light to Mr Smeaton & myself in the case of Davidson & Pattinson we will take care they shall not be losers  I would however keep this to yourself.

      I am exceedingly glad to hear you have found out the mistake about Mr Wilkinsons Ore and think it absolutely necessary you shd make an acknowledgment to Mr Wilson for your mistake.

      It is now fine Weather and I hope you get well away with the Washing.

             I am your hble Servt

      N W Junr.

Farnacres 6th March 1772 Mr Salter wrote to and desired to send 150 Casks of Bone Ashes to the care of Mr Airey.
