Farnacres 7th May 1782 Messrs Mulcaster On examining the Operation ending the 30th of March I found the following Errors. Ore smelted Bs. Cwts Cowslitts X Vn Old Cowslitts & X vn & Carrs East of Nent 39 Should be Bs. cwts Cowslitts X Vn & Old Cowslitts Cross Vein 35 Carrs East of Nent 2 6 37 6 Cowhill Hangingshaw & East End & Caple Cleugh Cutting 18 5 Should be Cowhill Hangingshaw & East End & Caple Cleugh Cutting 19 7 On the 23d of February there was no Stock of Refined Lead at the Mill and in the Operation ending the 30th. of March there were only 668 pieces of Refined Lead being the remainder of 1020 after deducting 352 <reported> to be produced in Operation ending 23d February. In Operation ending 30 March you report 681 pieces of Lead to have been sent to Newcastle and 186 as being in Stock at the Mill which two Quantities added together amount to 867 which is exactly 199 Pieces more than by Operations has been produced; it is therefore apprehended that in Operation ending 30 March there ought to have been a Report of 199 Pieces of Refined Lead as having been produced but the Silver not taken off. Cwt qs lbs Stock of Litharge saved 371. 2. 14 Shd. be 371. 2. 24 With regard to the Common Lead wch. happened to be 1 cwt pieces, we desire you will alter the Operation ending 23d.

Pieces Refined Slag Lead produced 511 Delivd. for NewCastle 424 You report no Stock but there shd. have been reported in Stock 87 I return the Operations ending the 30th. March to be wrote fair over but shall keep that ending 28th. February and have altered it. When I come to the Mill I will give Directions what is to be done about the Pig of Common Lead now there, and give Directions how the future Operations are to be made out as to that kind of Lead or any other 1cwt. Lead for Sale. I am Your Hble Servt Nich Walton Junr.
