To Mr Peter Mulcaster. Farnacres 8th Novemr. 1768 Mr Mulcaster When we were last at Hexham, you desired to know at what Periods we would have the Silver taken off; in answer to which this us to acquaint you, that we desire it may be done Monthly til further Orders; and you are desired to deliver the Silver to Mr Bell, who will send it from time to time by his Carrier Corbitt directed to us at Mr Gab Marleys in Gateshead. For the Time to come it will not be necessary to Number the Pieces of Lead; and you must Mark the Common Lead immediately from the Ore G.H.O. as you have already done that kind of Lead; the Common Lead from the White Slagg G.H.O.S. And the Lead immediately after being Refined G.H.L. And as to the other Sorts which may afterwards come in the way, you must consult with us what marks to give them. We propose buying you a Pair of Small Silver Scales for Weighing your Assays, the first convenient Opportunity. We are Sir Your Hble Servt Nich. Walton Jun J, Smeaton P.S, The Silver must be carefully put up in Boxes from time to time.
