Mr Mulcaster. Farnacres 23rd Febry 1775 The bearer Michl Spencer is tho' a Young Man I am assured a very good Workman and he is the Person who makes and repairs all Mrs Crowleys Bellows. He is desired to be as expeditious as possible and I hope he will be so. We are to pay his Expences to and from the Mill and 2s6d P day which you will do accordingly. I desire that as soon after the Man gets to the mill as you can Two pieces of Leather may be taken from the North and South sides of the South Bellows in the West Bellows House in order that in case of the two pieces of Leather which are wanting being found in any persons custody the Tallys may be preserved entire. If any of the pieces which you will have to take off the Bellows (except the two abovementioned) will serve to repair other parts of any of the Bellows that ought to be carefully attended to before the Leather is cut off from the Hides and in taking dimensions for what will be wanted new I would have you be certainly over rather than too scrupulously saving because one disappointment would loose both time and more money than allowing something for Waste. I am Your hble Servt N W Junr PS Some Bellows Nails will be wanted & Iley I suppose can make them very well.
