To Mr Peter Mulcaster                            			Farnacres 26th June 1779

Mr Mulcaster 

       You receive herein the Langley Mill Pay Bill for the 21st inst amounting to £522 . .4.  Our reckoning up our Cash after getting Home we found it to over run £ . 9 & ¼

       As we have made an alteration in the price of the Lead Carriage it will be proper to have all the Lead got in that was delivered from the Mill at the price of 13d you will therefore take care of that and let us know what the quantity will be since the Account you sent Mr Walton to the 1st May which was 13282 and you'll distinguish how much to each Carrier.   The Lead which you deliver after the alteration took place to 12d P pig must be kept in hand and not brought in til after we make a Lead Carriers Pay.

       There is a very strong Press and no Protections are paid any regard to.   This is absolutely necessary as every effort must be made. We are.

       Yours etc W & T
