Mr Mulcaster                                       				Farnacres 5th Septemr 1780.   

       Yours of the 29th Ulto & 2nd inst came duly to hand together with the operation for last Month.

       I think it right that the Stublick Level Men shd have aBox for their Candles & that they should take the Gunpowder at the price it cost us.

       The School House if that matter can be got forward had best be placed as you mention in Thomas Coats Pasture its front upon the Line of the Fence, rather within than without that line.

       I am obliged by your accompanying John Friend to Whitfield Mill I desired him to get you to go.  I think the fairest way would be for us to lift our Duty at the Cupola from the Ore now lying there which came from Browngill and Longholehead & what we save in Carriage to be paid to the Company and I desire you will immediately go to the Cupola and request that those parcels may not be Smelted but kept til we get this sad disagreeable business settled.  We shall advise in the strongest manner to have possession taken of the Mines if Waugh is not immediately discharged.          We are

       Yours etc

       W & T
