Mr Mulcaster.                           		Farnacres 9th May 1775

      We understand that some of the Carriers West of Hexham have got great quantities of Lead in hand particularly Forster of Yarridge and we therefore desire you will give the whole notice, that unless they get their Lead carried to Hexham, Newcastle or Newburn, and with all possible expedition, we shall give orders for other Carriers to take it from them, and never employ them more as Carriers.    We are

           Your hble Servts

           		W & S

PS As soon as you can take Bone Ashes into the new Room above the new Ash House, pray let us know, as there are 50 Casks now in the Warehouse at Newcastle, and 50 more days expected every day from London.

      None of the fine Holly must be sent down to Newcastle, 'til the Bone Ashes come up.
