	I received your Lre. of the 29th Ult. Mr Mulcaster did not see Mr Heron himself, but he left the Receipts with me to shew Mr Heron, who says all that Mr Mulcaster can do is to make a legal tender of the Rent to Mr Silvertop & not to his Agent as he did before, of which I have acquainted Mr Mulcaster – I am glad that you approve of what was done respecting the Silver.  Mess. Browne & Brind have wrote this day that they have received the P[iec]e sent them, but have only charged it as 5s/5d P.oz.  Inclosed you will receive Mr Mulcaster’s Lead account of yesterday – I have called upon Mr Bainbrid[ge] as you desired in your letter to Mrs Collingwood, about redeeming your Land tax when he informed me that I could do nothing relating to it ‘till you came home, unless I had a description of the Farm & knew the number of Acres in Arable, Meadow &c Land but that if you were at home it might be done in five minutes – There has been no applications for Lead yet.

	I am Sir Your Most Obedient very Hble Servt. 

      Thomas Crawhall
