Farnacres 19th March 1781 Mr Mulcaster We have reced yours of the 17th inst inclosing the Assays. The Reducing we observe is rather better this Operation but hope youll do better when you get full work of Throckley Coals. There cannot be any risk it is imagined by delivering the Lead in the way you mention only Thornton must take care to see that it is got delivered at Newburn & to get Receipts for it & we have wrote to him to do so. We are glad to see they get so well on at the New House. Don't hurry the work too much to finish all before we return from the West Country as we shall not make the pay till all is Smelted of last years Ore that can be except Tails etc as usual. This comes by Watson & the Howdons. We are glad to hear Mrs Mulcaster seems easier. The Silver is a considerable Quantity & from the appearance of the Assays looks as if it wd overrun considerably. The advantages ag[ains]t the Dutch are very great indeed & will probably be the occasion of great commotions in Holland & we hope in God be also the occasion of Peace. We are Your Humble Servants Walton & Turner PS Pray tell T Temperley we shall want Lime for Wm Howdon & Ptners & that they will apply to him. They must have Credit and so must Surtees & Ptners.
