Mr Mulcaster

       We have reced Thomas Temperleys Letter & are very glad to hear his Child is got well again.  The Chimney we desire may be Stone but wish to have them made better next and raised rather higher than common.  The Part<> had best be Brick except those between the Dairey and Back Room & Smith Shop & we desire you and Thomas will tell Parkes & Rewcastle this immediately.   The Bricks may be got at the Mill.  We shall be glad to hear you get fast forward with the House.  Pray tell the workmen we expect they will finish every thing with all possible dispatch and we doubt not of yours & Thomas Temperleys assistance.  Immediately on Recet hereof you are desired to send to James Watson & let him know we must see him and the Howdons here early on Monday Morning as we wish to set them to work.    We are

                          Your Humble Servants

                              Walton & Turner 

PS. We intend raising the Rents at Hexham on the 23d & 24th of next Month and shall dine with you on our way to Alston on the 25th and return again to the Lead Mill on Saturday the 5th of May and if every thing could be got ready for the pay we would pay the Lead Mill Work and Stublick Colliery the 7th of May but we doubt this cannot be effected.
