Mr Mulcaster. Farnacres. 5th March 1769 As I wrote before in a very great hurry & have now an opportunity of writing you a few Lines more I cannot let it Slip. In addition to what I said concerning the Smelters who you think it right should be dismissed I must observe that in case any of them have behaved so as to deserve being turn'd off I beg they maybe set adrift immediately as we will not suffer any Man to be at Langley Mill who you think it improper to have there, and this may serve you as directions for the time to come, for all Persons who may come under your care. With regard to the Slaggs I realy am of Opinion that the whole of each kind should always be Smelted before you Report any to be Smelted for instance 42Fod 17Cwt of Carrs Cowslitts & Cowslitts Cross Vein Slagg Smelted produced pieces of 1 1/2 Cwt each 72 Pieces and to reckon them as Stock til the whole of each sort are Smelted for it is the most ridiculous thing in the World to suppose it possible that 29Fo 9Cwt of Slags can produce 60 Pieces & that 21Fo 8Cwt of the very same sort of Slags shall only produce 12 but a Man may readily suppose it possible that the whole Quantity of 42Fo 17Cwt are only capable of producing 72 I am Your Hble Servt.
