To Mr. Peter Mulcaster						Farnacres 7th. July 1778.


Mr. Mulcaster

      I duly reced. yours with the Papers abt. Deanraw Colliery for which we stand indebted to you £21:9:1 being the Balance of the Payments after deducting the Coals.

      I desire you will immediately look thro’ the Wood at Crookhill in Land Ends Farm and the other Wood cut by Mr. Thornton & Mr. Sample and mark off and take what is wanted for Treddles.   I dare say if you cannot get them in Langley Barony (but I hope you will get them at Crook hill) you will get them at Highwoods.   If you shd. however be disappointed in getting right good Stuff, I wd. have you go with Mr. Thornton and mark and cut when the second Sap is on as much of proper Wood as you want in Donnetley Wood, but pick them out where the Wood stands thickest.   I am for Mr. Turner & Self

	Yours &c

      N:W: Junr:
