Messrs Peter & James Mulcaster.               				Farnacres 29 August 1781

       We have reced your Letters of the 24th & 25th inst and are glad to see yr produce in the Reducing better than it has been.   The Silver is arrived but we do not yet know its weight.  We approve of your postponing the Repair of the Reducing Furnace and of the agreement you have made with Thomas Trench & are glad to hear the Garden wall is finished & that Stones are laid towards building your Stackyard Wall.

       We are Your Humble Servants
