Mr Mulcaster. Farnacres 3d Decemr 1780 Yours of the 25th 27th and 28th are all received together with the Account of Ore reced this year and Pay Bill for the same. Yesterday Mr Walton saw Mr Blackett who will speak to Mr Hunter in a few days about the Reducing Business, after which we will endeavour to fix everything with him relative to that matter. We must approve of what you propose to the little Bingsteads as conveniences to the Washers etc but desire you will take care in the laying of the Ore into them that the side Walls of the Mill are not injured. Before we reced yours of the 27th Mssrs Surtees Rewcastle & Snowball had fully wrote us that you were no way to blame about the casting of the Sheet Lead, and the whole mistake arose from a Misapprehension of Mr Joblings. It seems to us awkward to have a Person to teach Children to write who himself writes with his left Hand, but in case Ridley of Fourstones has a good Character we shd on acct of his Misfortune be happy to contribute to his Relief and on this Acct shd be glad to have a trial made of him. We are glad the Reducing Works seems to promise better & hope the produce will continue better and better. We have not yet examined the Pay Bill but doubt not it is right. What you propose as to the weighing of Blagill Ore is certainly right. We desire to see you and John Friend at this place early on Monday Morning the 16th instant and desire you will fix the Pay to be at Hexham or at your House as you think proper the next day. We are Your Humble Servants Walton & Turner PS No reasons for any body else to come.
