To Mr. Peter Mulcaster					Farnacres 24th. March 1777


Mr. Mulcaster

      Yours of the 19th. I duly received and am glad the Work is likely to be got mostly finished against the time when the Pay is to be made.   What you propose as to the Refiners, Reducers & Slag Smelters is the only Method that can be observed in case the Work shd. not be done at the Pay, & to which there cannot be the least Objection, and after they have all finished, the Operation may then be made out to take in the whole to the End of the Years Quantity.

      The Shaft as you observe had best stand til Mr. Hilton sees it, and as to Henderson & Coulson I think it is perfectly clear they shd. both leave us, but that need not be ‘til after the Pay unless they could in the mean time provide for themselves, & I wish they could.   I am

      Your &c

      N.W. Junr
