Farnacres 10th June 1782 Messrs. Mulcaster I yesterday sent to NewCastle for the Medicine for Thos. Robson which, having just reced, I send by James Johnsons Man with directions that it may be forwarded at the first Opportunity to Langley Mill. I need not give you any further Directions than you will find in the <above> Recipe and upon the Bo<x>es. I wish success to the operation, and doubt not Thomas will be cured if he takes the Medicine according to Directions. I am much obliged by your care of the Packet which I have reced safe. No Directions can yet be given concerning the carriage of the Lead. Having read over the Memorandums given me <at> Langley Mill and having considered the several Proposals for the walling of the <Home> Pastures I think it will certainly be right to agree with Wm. Pattinson for the winning & leading and with regard to the walling you are desired to make the best agreement you can so as to have the whole well done. I have ordered 120 Common 1 ¼ Inch Deals but shall not order any <fine> Deals <till> <further> At all times in future I desire you will set down the lengths of the Deals as well as the sort and thickness. The Laths & Nails I have also ordered. I suppose the <..> Nails are for nailing on the plaistering Laths. We <call> them Lathing Tackets but I hope they will come right. I have desired Mr. Harvey to send 30 8 & 9 ft. Deals <out> of the 120 & the remainder to be 11 & 12 fts.
