To Mr Robt Mulcaster					Farnacres 23 March 1776

Mr. Mulcaster

	I recd your Letter of the 17th. Inst. on my return from Hexham and am obliged to you not only on Accot. of what you have done as to Ned Elliot but also with regard to William Liddell.   As the former cannot be at Liberty ‘till Christmas and we cannot wait till then, he is out of the question, and as I think Liddell appears to be a proper Man for us if he can be satisfied with taking the best wages we can afford him at Langley Mill as set forth in the inclosed Letter I must beg of you to assist us in getting him imediately I dare say two Lines from me to Mr. Bell might be of service in procuring him a discharge and if he is desirous to serve us at Langley Mill pray send him here this day if you can & I will give him a Letter. I shall certainly insist on Liddells having half of Elliots Farm if that shall be found agreable to Liddell on his examining into the circumstances of it when he gets to the Mill. I shall be glad to hear from you & desire you will return the inclosed Letter  If Liddell cannot come this day I desire to see him tomorrow morning at seven OClock.   

      I am &c  NW Junr. 
Robert Mulcaster was Walter Blackett’s smelting agent at Blaydon.
