To Mr Peter Mulcaster. Farnacres 20th May 1779 Mr Mulcaster We are very happy under the Circumstances you mention that so little damage has been done by the Fire and desire you will make yourself perfectly easy as we are truly convinced of your care and of your activity. Indeed we do not see we can blame anybody, for though the Fire must have happened in the way you suppose it to have done, yet as the Cynders were loaded in the manner you mention, there did not seem to be the least probability of such an Accident happening. The place must now be entirely for Coals, and let the Cynders be Stacked at the door 'til we have time to consider what is to be done. We are Yours etc W & T PS You'll get the Lintel etc repaired. We have examined your Operation to 1st May for the Old Account and find Refined Lead Account Short 3 pieces. The Quantity of fine Litharge Reduced 541Cwts Qrs - 13lb shd be 540Cwts 1Qr 13lb. Pray order the Lead Carriers to get all to Newcastle or Newburn as fast as possible except what has been delivered of the new Account.
