To Mr. Mulcaster Farnacres 13th Septemr. 1776 Mr Mulcaster Your Letters of the 29th Ulto. and 2d. 4 and 12th inst. are now before me. The Several Cakes of Bullion weighed as follows. Ounces That taken off the 29th June 628 1/2 27 July 477 2 August 211 19 August 420 I have set the Weight of Lead, down in the Accot. you sent me as to the Rich Litharge Lead. The Operations came safe to hand. I am surprized the Iron wanted 8 pound. I am promised to have it made good the next order. It is all Sweedish Iron . I have this day wrote to Mr Labourne desiring he will get the Outshot done agreeable to your desire. He is poor Man very ill. What you have done abt. Wm Wilson is quite right and I desire Batey may have no more Lead either from the Mill or from the Carriers. The Height of the Wall must be Six Quarters exclusive of Cope and I desire it may be set forward immediatly. <Sh>d. not have the Throughs to project beyond the Wall but to be flush with the Wall, for when they are left out they only serve to encourage people to Climb over the Wall, Whoever undertakes and Builds well may be assured of work the Winter thro’. The Lead Carriage you are desired to stop immediately & let me know how much you have delivered since the Carriage begun afresh; and pray give Notice to all the Carriers to get in the Lead as soon as possible. I would have you get some more Cynders from Greymare and employ whoever you think proper to bring them but if Isaac Burnhope will carry them as cheap as any body else I wd. rather have you employ him. The Assays are all come safe, & the Silver is arrived at Mr Aireys. Johnson and Corbet are to have the Carriage of the Bone Ashes between them. The produce of Lead is very good and we must keep Ned Elliot. I am your &c NW Junr.
