To Mr Peter Mulcaster						Farnacres 24th Sepr. 1778

Mr Mulcaster

      Having examined your Operations we find a mistake in that ending 27 June & afterwards, your Stock at Guddamgill Burn Cross Vein South End No.2 appearing to be 18 Bings Short.   You have here with extracts from the Several Operations which will enable you to set the matter right and we shall be glad to hear from you at any convenient time how the Operations are to be altered.   We suppose altering the Stock would set all right but shall not do any thing til we hear from you.

      Shawfoot Cross Vein is refineable as it produces by Assay 5 Oz:17pwts:14 Grs, 4 Tenths p[er] Fodder and we reckon 5 Ounces will do.

      By a Letter reced. from Mr Hilton we hope the Ore delivery will all prove right but beg to hear from you.   We are

      Yours &c

      W & T
