Mr Mulcaster							Farnacres 30 January 1781

      I have not time to say more than that I have fixed Thomas Forsters having the bringing up the Wood and remainder of the Deals for Stublick Colliery House and that I hear one Hundred of the Deals have been taken away by James Johnsons Man.   If you can send the inclosed so as to be at Alston before James Johnson goes I beg you will but don't send a special Messenger.   Let T Temperley know I have been so much engaged as never to have been able to go thro' his Letters etc in such manner as to have it in my power to write him in answer.   I am

           Your Hble Servant

      Nich Walton Junr

PS if you cannot send the Letter otherwise before James Johnson goes be so good as send it by him. It must not be later in getting to Alston than Saturday Morning.
