To  Christr. Ricardson Esqr.       at  Nunwick                                         Newcas.   7th   June 1771

     Near Penrith Cumberland

Sir      As you and I are not so fortunate as to agree in our Sentiments upon Mr Maughan’s behaviour to Mr. Thos. Thompson, I beg this Letter may with great Civility put a period to a Correspondence upon a Subject which cannot be determined by our Letters; at the same time assuring you that if there is a Judge or Court in which you shall think proper to proceed against Mr Maughan, should there be a decree or verdict given against Mr Maughan for his behaviour to Mr Thompson, I shall be willing to pay not only all nominal but real Expences attending the Suit and such a proceeding would be a Satisfaction to me that the Case might be cleared up to the public rather than have a report propagated of a flagrant Act of Injustice committed by Mr Maughan without that Assertion being ever cleared up.  

                 I am etc    HR
