      Ravensworth Castle  August 29th. 1738


	I wrote you last Saturday Evening and therein desired you wou’d stop any proceedings against Mr Blackett for the Arrear of sams Island, as it was some time agoe pay’d to our Baliff Mr Bunting, who regularly accounted for it, as it has been by me to the Directors of Greenwich Hospital in an Accot. which we have settled with them to the 31 December last. The reason why I give you this trouble is that I’ve reced. a Coppy of your last letter to Mr Ellis wherein you say no Satisfaction will doe to you but the payment of the Arrear wch I again assure you has been payd by Mr Ellis & has been also regularly accounted for to the Directors of the Hospital. And as I apprehend it is the Interest of the Hospital not to proceed where there is actually no Debt due I beg you will Stop proceed[ing]s  Accordingly which will Oblige

      Sir Your most Hble Servt

      Nich. Walton
Not addressed, but possibly to the Hospital’s London attorney William Radley. The previous letter to which Walton refers is not in the Letter Book.
