To Mr Peter Mulcaster.              			Farnacres 7th April 1780

Mr Mulcaster

      On looking over the Operations again and examining the Operation ending the 1st inst I find the following Errors which desire you will satisfy in in your Copies.

In Operation ending the 27th November in the Accts of Ore brot in

You have Brownley Hill Bouse                14.2.8   22.2

shd be Brownley Hill Bouse 5.2 Cutting 9    14.2.8   22.2

In Operation ending 26th February you have at yr first Title - 

Ore brought in - should be Ore Smelted.


      I do not propose coming to any determination as to the price of Carriage for Ore this Season til I come to the Mill, and therefore desire you will set it down among the rest of the Memorandums of Business to be talked over when I come there.

      We have reason to rejoice at having so secure a place as the Iron Chest for our Silver Prices, and the Circumstance you mention proves how clearly it was necessary to have a place of Safety for those valuable Productions.

      I am much obliged to you for the very particular Account you give abt the Drift and hope I shall be able to congratulate Geo. Temperley upon having in petrâ firmâ on my Arrival at the Mill.

      Your Produce in the Reducing is very tolerable this Operation and I hope they will stil improve.     I am

      Your Hble Servant
