Mr Mulcaster. Farnacres 28th January 1771 In examining your last operation for December I find by the Quantity Smelted your stock of Cowhill & Cross Vein & Old Cowslitts and Cowslitts Cross Vein shd be 3bings 3 cwt whereas it is only 3.2. The stock 24th November 82 6 Smelted in Operation ending 29 December 79 3 Remains 3 3 But if there was realy smelted 79B 4 Cwt deduct a cwt 1 3 2 When you have looked into this pray let me know how it should be & I will set it right. I wish to receive this Month’s Operation as soon as your convenience will permit but am not in a hurry abt it. I am your Hble servt N Walton Junr PS. You have never said how the Sieve Bottoms Mr Smeaton sent answer; if you chuse any more let me know what sorts. The 29th December Operation I observe has 325 Cwt pieces made from Mr Wilkinson’s mines but I think you should make an Assay before they are Refined. You have not taken notice of the particular Quantities of Cutting Ore reced from each Mine last year – that shd have been done but don’t now trouble yourself about it: I would however take notice of this in future years. If you can without much trouble let me know how much boase and how much cutting ore you reced from Middlecleugh in 1770, and the sme from Middle Cleugh Sun Veins. I should like it & the sooner the better.
