Messrs Peter and James Mulcaster.      					Farnacres 16th August 1781

       We have reced your Letter of the 13th and as it is probable we shall be with you on the 9th of next Month desire youll have every thing as farr forward as you can against that time as to the Walls   Cynder House and Road & with regard to the latter we wish you not in the least to leave any part uncovered for our View as we shall be perfectly satisfied if you are.   We did not forget that part of the Wood had been Sawn into Deals, but thought there would shall be some wanting.   It gives us pleasure to find there will be none wanting & we hope a great progress will have been made in getting Stones to the place where the Rooms are to be built before we come to the Mill upon the 9th inst as in case the Rooms can be done this Season without inconvenience that had but be got compleated without loss of time. We are

       Your Humble Servants

       Walton & Turner

PS  After reckoning the Material we now have ready for the Rooms to go towards building them without changing them in the Accts we shd be glad to have an Estimate what the Rooms will cost but believe that had best be let alone till we come as then the manner of doing every thing will be settled; however let the Stones be got won & Ledd.    The Materials we now have we reckon to be Wood & Deals, Slates & Flaggs. The Peats need not be removed till we come to the Mill.  You must send us an Account of the Tillage Land at Langley Mill the first convenient opportunity.
