Mr Mulcaster Farnacres 7th June 1771 On considering what you mention about Corbett & Johnson I think it is to be wished that they may get the Carriers to agree to give up the Halfpinny PPiece to Hexham and therefore it will be proper for us not to interfere in this matter in the least, but to continue to tell all the Carriers that we expect them to see the Lead they take up at the Mill carried to Newcastle. I am in hopes the Elswick Men will carry 2000 pieces for us Annualy. If you happen to have any more Cakes of Bullion dirtied on the Edges I would have you cut the dirtied part off and melt it in a Test in the Assay Furnace & send it with the Cake to which it belongs. Nicholas Temperley behaves oddly, if you find he continues in the same mood pray let me know particularly, that I may try whether Mr Bell can't set him to right. I am Your Hble Servt N W Junr.
