Mr Mulcaster.                          				Farnacres 19 Novr 1780

      The Silver is come safe to hand and weighs exactly 750 1/2 Ounces.

      I am Sorry you are prevented getting the School House covered in this Season and desire you'll take care to get the Walls covered with Turf to prevent their being injured by the Frost.

      It will give us pleasure to hear that you get Coals to answer for the Reducing and I shall be glad to hear how you get on.  Mr Blackett I saw yesterday & he has assured me he will write to Dukesfield to Mr Hunter  about letting us have a Tryal of their Men we letting them have ours & I would not have you apply 'til you hear again from me but should in the meantime like to know whether you would wish to have one or two Men from there.    

      I am Yours etc 

      N W Junr
