To Mr Peter Mulcaster. Farnacres 30th May 1779 Mr Mulcaster The several Letters you have wrote since I left home for the Northern parts of the County of Northumberland & Durham have I suppose come to my Hands being three in Number two of the 24th and one of the 26th for which Mr Turner & I are obliged. The Stock of Lead the 27 March by Operation 280 Shd have been 281 Short 1 produced from that time to the 1st May From Refineable Lead by Operation 180 From Rich Litharge &c Lead 297 477 758 Delivered for Newcastle 755 Short 3 Litharge 27 March by Operation 470.3.21 Do. 1st Test 1 May by Do 56 Do Do Slag Lead by Do. 14.1.11 541 - 13 Reduced 541 - 13 right The Circumstance you mention respecting Edward Atkinson is certainly clear and he has an undoubted right to go by Ellrington or by Haltwhistle to Alston and to Langley Mill without paying a Farthing, if no Gate was fixed at Alston and you may tell him tho' we undoubtedly shall join in prosecuting every fraud, we shall at the same time declare our intention of supporting as far as we properly can do every Idea of right to the Enjoyment of all public Roads and that our Opinion is for Atkinson to continue to travel upon the Ellrington Road 'til the taker of the Summer rodds Barr or any other person can show that it is necessary Atkinson shd enjoy one public Road where he can be Toll free rather than that upon which there is a Toll Barr at which he must pay in case he passes thro' it. We shall be with you soon and will give you Notice the first Opportunity but perhaps it may be three Weeks, tho' we hope much sooner. We are Yours etc N & T PS Wm Pattinsons case is quite different and he has no Relief that we can at present not permit.
