To Mr Peter Mulcaster.                    				Farnacres 30th March 1779

Mr Mulcaster

      I have reced your Letter of the 24th inst and along with this and in another Cover you will receive Ten Blank Leases which I desire you will disperse amongst the persons to whom you think they will be most likely to be useful; at the time of sending or delivering them taking Notice that it is by direction of Messrs Walton & Turner that you do this.

      Mr Hilton I have wrote to & hope he and John Friend will soon see you.   I have told him that you have acquainted me of his having set on some addl. Carriers without consulting with you and that you did this in consequence of my Letter of the 12th inst that you gave me the Account.

      I am glad you have reced the Book and Paper at last.

      It will be very proper to try low Stublick coals.

      I would not have you take less than 20s/ P pig for the Lead which Mr Martinson gets as it would be breaking thro' a Rule we have laid down & I think right to keep to.

      I am Yours etc

      N W Junr
