Mr Mulcaster 

       We have reced yours of the 31st Ulto and most assuredly think you very excusable on being silent on so solemn an Occasion as that you've been engaged in.  The loss you have sustained of a Parent was fully expected by Mr Walton when he last left you and we doubt not you are fully resigned upon this Event.

       When the next Weeks Work of Reducing is finished we shd be glad to hear from you.

       Your Nephew acquainted us how the Building was going on at Stublick and you are desired to deliver the inclosed Letter to the Contractors the first opportunity you have.

       We shall not expect the Operation 'til it is quite convenient to you to send it.

       We have not yet received any directions concerning the application you made for your Brother to join you in the Agency at Langley Lead Mill, but as we have no doubt of the Proposition being agreeable to the Commissioners of Greenwich Hospital we shd be glad that your Brother might come and reside with his Son when he finds it convenient to leave his present Dwelling place, and as soon as we can give further directions in this matter we certainly shall. We are

       Yours etc

       W & T
