Mr Mulcaster. Farnacres 6th March 1775 I have this day weighed the Bullion which is 420 1/2 Ounces being just 3 Oz 11Dw 5 3/10 Gr short of the Assay which is exceeding good work compared with the Assay; but stil the Refined Lead contains more Silver than it ought to do for it has no less in it than 17Dw 3 6/10 Gr P Fodder. Brownleyhill North Vein Lead by Assay has 11 Oz 16 Dw 10 2/10 Gr of Silver P Fodder in it. Mr Stevenson, who is the bearer hereof, will bring any particulars which you may be able to send me relative to the Mill or the Persons suspected; and I hope you will have heard something material in consequence of the reward I most sincerely and heartily wish it I assure you. I am Your hble Servt N W Junr PS D- F [Duke Forrest?] has I doubt not been enquired. after Abr Steel was certainly the properest Man to be employed in that Service. I have left a Bunch of Keys either at the Mill Office, at your House or at Newtonhall; if you find them, be so good as send them by Mr Stevenson.
