To Mr. Peter Mulcaster					Farnacres 7 Febry. 1779

Mr. Mulcaster

      I am glad to hear that you have done your work so well that dunwoodie has done with his Bargain and I think it reflects credit on you and all of us.   I approve very much of your trying him at the Ore Tails at the price you mention Nine Guineas p[er] Fodder.   I have examined the Operation & find all right except the Short Pig which has been so some time, but I hope it may cast up at the Pay of the Lead Carriers. I desire you’ll make the following Addition to your Operation ending the 30 January or otherwise it will not agree wth. my Accounts.

For Guddamgill Burn Cross Vein South End No. 1 & 2     105.5 

Write Guddamgill Burn Cross Vein South End No. 1 & 2 & Brownley hill                                          105.5
