To Mr Mulcaster						Farnacres 15th Novemr. 1778

Mr Mulcaster

      We duly recd. Yours as also the Bullion weight 515 ½ Ounces.   We are sorry at the difference with the Carriers and think they certainly ought to have had an intimation what was intended before they were sent to carry for the Allen Mill Company.   We think it is not material to have another Cake taken off before the Pay but wd rather wish it to be taken off than the Contrary.   With regard to the price of Refining we wd have the Charge for it to continue to be 2s/10d p[er] Fodr. and 2d p[er] Fodder charged separate for the letting down the Tests.   We are

	Yours &c

      W & T
