To Mr Peter Mulcaster						Farnacres 20 Septr, 1778

Mr Mulcaster

      I was realy much surprized at receiving your Letter of the 16th. Inst. and beg you will take the first opportunity of going to Alston and seeing Mr. Hilton and Mr Percival together about the Ore wantg. from the Companys Mines which was upon the 26th. of August as mentioned in the inclosed Paper conformable to the Accounts as settled by Myself and which we must abide by, and insist upon the Duty being delivered accordingly and I must desire to hear from you and Mr Hilton jointly as soon as possible after you and he have been with Mr Percival.

      We cannot yet say when the Lead Mill Pay will be but suppose it will be towards the latter end of November but it is quite uncertain.   I am Yours &c NW Junr.

PS There is only one thing that can possibly affect the Quantitys mentioned in the inclosed paper which is that Mr Percival may have over rated the Quantities raised in three Quarters ending at Midsummer but if he has done that it may be set right in the Michs. Quarter and ought not to make any Alteration in the Account as settled to the 26th August
