To Mr Mulcaster Farnacres 5 Decr 1775 Mr Mulcaster We have duly rcd. yours of the 2d inst and we think that what you propose of letting the Refiners Work upon the Slag Lead and set the Silver Pieces by as you propose will be a furtherance to the Work: and as we have no doubt, that when you clearly see a thing advantageous to the Work, but that it will meet with our concurrence; we desire that you will put it in immediate execution, wheniver you see it condusive so to do. With respect to the rest, when we have your account of the supplemental Experiments you will hear further from us. We cannot wonder at your Peoples having had the Cold, as it has been so universal, it seems that the Smoke even of a Smelt Mill will not blunt its effect; but we are glad you have escaped so easily, and would not have you believe that every body must have it severely; the Family here have had it very slightly, and Mr Smeaton not at all, and he hopes to go off entirely Scott free. We are &c NW Junr JS.
