Messrs Mulcaster                                            				Farnacres 30th Decemr 1781 

       I am very concerned at the damage wch has been done to your Roofs and greatly approve of your alertness in getting the whole of the damage repaired and I beg you will continue to exert yourselves to get the work finished with all possible expedition.   The weather is now favourable and will I hope continue good till you effect this. I am in not the least hurry about the Assay Accounts.

       I was sorry to hear of the death of John Friends Sister.  He I understand from my Man Isaac, was at Newcastle attending her Funeral yesterday.  I think it very strange indeed that he shd not call here.

       I am Your very humble Servant

       Nich Walton Junr
