Mr Mulcaster Farnacres 7th October 1771 Your Letter of the 3rd us now before me as also that of the 30th Ult. which I received at Newtonhall when at Mr Joblings. I am glad your produce turned out better than you expected in the reducing way last Operation and doubt not you will get the Furnace repaired with all convenient dispatch. The Black Slag Lead is Refineable, it gives more than 6 Ounces P Fodder. The produce of Silver this Operation is very good according to the mean of the two Assays, but I have not yet had time to go to Town to Weigh it. It is really strange that there should be so much difference in the Quality of Middle Cleugh & Carrs Ores pray let Mr Hilton know it must surely be partly owing to that but only a natural defect we must be content for where little is much cannot be expected. I am for Mr Smeaton & Self. Your Hble Servt N W Junr PS. I desire youll address all your Letters about the Mill for this place to Messrs Walton & Smeaton.
