To Wm Corbett Esq.                  				Ravensworth Castle March 15 1742/3


       I had an Acct last night from Dilston that on Saturday the 12 Inst Seven of the Tennants those were Servd with <Or ….> Supeneas [sub poenas] (by Mr Robt Bulman Attorney at Law in Morpeth) at the Sute of Sir John Webb Bart return<bl> by the 20th of April Next also he has servd David Brown Father to one of the Tennants but is not Tennant himself & one Nichs Stokoe who <I take> is only a Son of John Stokoe.  I am of opinion that the Execs of the late Mr Radcliff are for giving the Hospital some trouble about the Dean & Chapter <&> the Leases of Dilston & Lorbottle Tythes.

       The Board will be pleased to take Notice to Order some to answer for them agt the time mentioned.

       Inclosed is Mr John Stephensons quarterly Acct of the Lead miners to Christmas last with an Acct of the Mines unwrought.

       I have Sent Mr James Wood this day a bill on Samuel Child Esq & Comp for £800 - on Acct of the Rents & Profitts of the Estate. I am

       Sir.  Your verry Hble Servt
