							Farnacres 8th March 1782

Messrs. Mulcaster

      I received your Letter of the 4th inst on Wednesday afternoon and am very glad you have got the Refining House Wall repaired & much approve of what you have done wch. I dare say will be found effectual & I shall be glad to know the expense at any convenient time to you both.   The Tarras you are desired to take care of & keep moderately dry.

	You will be doing as you propose as to the carriage of the Lead but I hope soon to give you further directions

	Thomas Temperleys Recets are safe in our hands as also the Operation paper which there was not the least occasion for you to make out afresh & indeed I thought I had given directions which shewed you that.

	I do not know what a long ladder means.   If you had told me how long I believe I could have ordered you suitable Wood, so pray let me know in your next Letter.

	What you propose about the Toofall is quite proper.   I am    Your Humble Servt.

      Nich Walton Junr.							
‘Toofall’ is more usually rendered as ‘Teefall’, meaning a room under the slope of the roof and thereby triangular in cross section.
