Mr Mulcaster 

      We have reced your Letters of the 28th instant, and also the Accounts of Ore delivered and Amount of the Carriage for the present year & the old Account for last year.

      On Monday Evening the 12th next Month we desire youll be at Newcastle and that Jno Friend and Mr Thornton may come with you.  The next Morning you must come to Farnacres where we will have all packed for you ready for the Pay.

      We are sorry to hear that the difficulty wch Mr Walton apprehended has happened and every effort must be made to get forward as you see leaving it to itself only causes difficulty.  We propose sending you Half a Hundred coarse Deals next Friday or sooner if we can.

      When you come to Farnacres, we must think of some Method to get the Lime Money.

      We are. Yours etc

      W & T
