Farnacres 6th April 1781 Mr Mulcaster I have received your Letter of the 2d with the Operation for last Month and have examined & find it right. I am glad to see you have got so well forward & hope you may make a finish of the Ore before the end of this Month, but I would not wish to have anything hurried tho' the sooner all is done the better & more agreable & I believe the best way will be to let alone making the Lead Mill Pay too and therefore I would have you keep spurring the Lead Carriers to bring the Lead down as fast as they get it for I wd have all last Years Ore Lead brought in before we pay. This last is as I recollect agreable to your wishes. Let there be two Cakes of Silver. Mr Thornton was I suppose Married on Tuesday. He judges improperly to keep our Workmen from the House at Stublick. Yours of the 31st Ulto was duly received & answered the 1st inst. I am concerned to hear of Nicholas Temperley being so ill and fear as you do that he will scarcely see out the Lease of Stublick Colliery. I am Your Humble Servant Nich. Walton Junr PS. Lead has got to £15 for Refined - small quantities. Large Quantities I suppose about £14.12.6 & 15s.
