Mr Mulcaster                                             				Farnacres 19 January 1781 

       We are glad the winning of the Coins & Stones winning is got so well on with and shall on Tuesday order the Wood and Deals to Newburn where they certainly will be got the next Week if the Frost does not set in and prevent their being carried by water so far and if that shd be the case they must be brought directly from Newcastle. The Wood now at the Mill had best be kept there.  What you mention about the Oven is undoubtedly right as is every thing else about the Twofall, & we have mentioned this to Thomas Temperley as from ourselves. As we wish to see you to consider about the Reducing desire youll be here on Saturday Afternoon the 27th inst or rather ag. dinner.

       We are Your Humble Servants

       Walton & Turner
