Mr Mulcaster

      Yours of the 9th & 11th are now before me and our Sentiments are so much alike about the Guns that before I reced. your Letter I had given directions to pick out the two best Guns for your defence at Langley Mill which will be done as soon as the whole are cleaned which I expect will be in a few days or perhaps a Week & then I will take care to send them to you.  The Silver is arrived.   I am &c
