To Mr. Mulcaster. Farnacres 9th March 1777 Mr. Mulcaster Yours of the 3d. Inst. I duly recd. and inclose you the Terms which I think ought to be insisted on as to the Farm at Langley Mill and doubt not it will be found of Advantage to all to adopt them. The Barn shall be of the Size you mention vizt. 24 feet long by 15 Wide & as you are none of you in a way of Leading the Materials it must be expected from you and the other Persons concerned, to get the Materials ledd as cheap as you can, we to pay the Leading and the Persons concerned, the Interest, both for that and the Amount of the Building. It is quite agreable to me that Frank Carr shd. have T. Elliots whole Farm except the Share of the Encroachment but I desire it may be considered that he is Frank’s Tenant for the Incroachmt. part. What you have done as to Wm. Pattinson is proper & he must have an Allowance if necessary. Nothing would give me more Concern than our Workmen any of them being hurt by our pushing them too hard so as to have the Pay made upon the 22d. of April but if it cd. be done then it will be a great Convenience to us & I beg you will do every thing in yr. Power to effect that, only I must again say the Workmen must not be put in hazard on that Accot. & when I say so, be assured I shd. be sorry anything was required that might hurt you, so you will upon the whole do as you find will be most conformable to the above wishes, & I shall be glad to hear from you. I am Your &c. N.W. Junr. Messrs. Walton & Smeaton will be at Langley Mill Tuesday 15th. Ap[ri]l. in the Evening Wednesday 16 Do - & go to Hexham Hexham Sunday 20 ) Monday 21 ) Prepare for Pay Tuesday 22 Make lead Pay. The Lead Carriers must be let alone til’ afterwds. P.S. We shall I believe receive at Hexham on the 18 & 19 Apl being Friday & Saturday but this is not yet fixed. I have not had time yet to set the Operations right. Your last brought me that ending 22d. Febry. 1777.
