Mr Mulcaster							Farnacres 9th February 1781 

      Yours of the 5th with the Operation is come to hand and we are realy surprized to see so very bad a produce from Gallygill Syke and Carrs Ore but it cannot now be helped. We have wrote to the Contractors to be with you very soon & doubt not they will be so, as now they shd be getting every thing ready but we would not wish them to begin any walling till March.  We observe you have settled with Mr Bell for his lost Pig of Lead and have reced the Recet which was given him.  We wrote you the 4th which hope you have reced as it was ordered to be sent from Mr Ion's by a special Messenger. We are

      Your Humble Servants

      Walton & Turner

PS.   You are desired to send 20 pieces of Lead by James Johnson and directed for Mr Watson Plumber in the High Bridge NCastle and we wish Johnson to deliver them as soon as possible at Mr Watsons House.   Let them be marked No 1 to No 20 and send us the weight of each Pig & we beg they may be the softest Refined Lead.
