To Mr Peter Mulcaster.                 			Farnacres 26 Sepr 1779


Mr Mulcaster

       I wrote you fully yesterday respecting the Lead Carriage and doubt not you will have Satisfaction by the Information contained in my Letter.   I am now in addition to acquaint you that I think myself obliged by the Information you have given me respecting the Level for new Winning Stublick Colliery and hope the Clay will continue as you describe but at all Events it will certainly be proper that an Agreement shd be made with the Workmen Per Fathom; undoubtedly at as low a Rate as possible, but it is perfectly clear that we shall now do better by Bargain than in any other way.   I heartily join you in the Satisfaction you express on Acct of the Quarry turning out better than it was before, and entirely approve of your giving directions to presence such Stones as you may think likely to be of use to us, & that you shd employ Francis Carr or any others whom you may think proper in winning Stones to supply the Deficiency which may be occasioned by your preserving the Stones as abovementioned.  The time you mention for ending Account & what you mention as to the Refiners and Reducers not only shows your Attention to the Business but is quite agreable to what is wished.

I am for Mr Turner and Self.              

       Your etc N W Junr
