Mr Mulcaster

      We have reced your Letter by Mr Todd and have no objection to your making the Pay on Thursday the 16th inst and desire you will fix it accordingly.

      It realy vexes us to hear the Level Men get into difficulties and we must beg to have the Work carried on Night and day Sundays not excepted til the Quick Sand is got entirely secured or otherwise there is no saying what may be the loss.  We sent you 100 Coarse Deals which hope are arrived or will very soon be with you.  You see what Mr Walton apprehended as to the Quick Sand come to pass, we however flatter ourselves all will soon be got secured.  You write so clearly about the Mining busyness that we can scarce persuade ourselves but you have been employed in that way.   You need not be at Farnacres on Monday Sennt sooner than Nine o Clock in the Morning.we are glad to hear John Friend gets strength. We are

      Yours etc
