Mr Mulcaster

       We have reced yours of the 7th and are very glad to see the good produce from the Reducing Furnace which as well for the sake of our employers as for the Credit of the employed we wish most heartily to continue.   We approve of your permitting another Tryal of Stublick yard Coals & also of your continuing to send for Throckley Coals.

       Our Sentiments so often are the same when we happen to be upon the same subject that the instance as to the Lead Pay shows we are going on in the same agreeable way that we trust we always shall do.

       The House at Stublick Colliery will we hope be finished  against the time you mention and pray tell the Workmen we shall have great pleasure in seeing it so when we do come to the Lead Mill.

       We are Your Humble Servts

       W & T

PS.  We are much obliged to your brother Robert for his obliging by giving his advice as to the Reducing busyness; in a little time we hope to be enabled to ask leave for you or your Brother James to come and get a few Lessons from him at Bladon.
