To Mr Peter Mulcaster. Farnacres 3rd Sepr 1779. Mr Mulcaster By the inclosed you will observe that Gill Brown's Account as it was settled at Hexham is wrong added 10s which we desire you will get of him and he must Sign the New Receipt instead of that which was taken at Hexham which last May then be burnt. And youll see that John Havelocks Account is wrong he having been paid for 9 more from Hexham to Newburn than he ought to have been so you'll get Six Shillings of him and he must Sign the new Recet and that he gave at Hexham may be destroyed; after you have done this pray send the new Recets. When you see John Batey acquaint him he is short paid for 10 pieces from Hexham to Newcastle and Wm Wear that he is short paid at One piece at 4d from Mill to Hexham. Those we will pay ourselves at the next Pay. We shall be glad to have to have the Measure of the Diameter of the Kam Wheel for the Refinery and the length of the Kam the first opportunity & are Yours etc N W & T PS. We find our Cash right and hope when the Lead is all got in that some of the lost Lead will be found. Yours of the 3rd Moment came to hand and along with it the advice from Mr Aireys Clerk of the Silver being arrived. What you propose about the including the Bullion in the Operation is perfectly agreeable and we shall be glad to hear from you about the Refining Cogg Wheel and the Refined Lead Assays when convenient. We must be very cautious in our proceeding with the Level now as it is about 10 feet from the Surface to the bottom there will be no such thing as continuing with wet Weather.
