Mr Mulcaster. Farnacres 16th November 1773 We have your Letter now before us respecting a Smelter in lieu of John Price and in case you had not mentioned it Fras Carr wd not have been forgotten by us and we desire he may be fixed in the room of Price and if you see no objection to it you will fix one of John Robson's Sons who you think most likely to answer the end in the place of Carr. It gives us pleasure that yrs & our Sentiments agree as for Carr. You have done right in letting Barrow & Craig have leave to go to Dufton. The Black Slag Lead is not Refineable but Scaleburnmoss gives 9 Oz. 9Dw. 21Gr P Fodder and consequently very well worth Refining. We desire you will send forward the inclosed the first convenient opportunity by a careful hand. We are yr hble Servts W & S PS. Let Mrs Brown know that we shall be glad to oblige her but that we think her advantages by the Mill at present fully sufficient & therefore she ought to be satisfied. The Letter to Mr Hilton shd not be later in getting to Alston than Friday.
