	I hope you have this morning made a Seizure of the Goods of Readhead of Whittles, & that you have made a Shedule of the whole, & left it with a Person in possession to Stay there till the day of Sale, wch I perceive cannot be before Wednesday next.

	You will take care to give publick notice of the Sale at Ovingham Bywell, & Corbridge Churches, a Coppy of wch (as I would have it published) you have Inclosed, by which you will observe Six Months Credt will be given for all goods above 20 Shillings, or an allowance of 6d in the Pound will be made to those that pay ready money.

	Do not publish or Sell any of the Household Goods without further order, but I hope either Mr Boag or I will be with you the day of Sale; but if we Should not you must attend the Sale & take promry Notes payble at Martinmas next, & in each Note must be two Persons.  I mean one Substantial Man must be bound for the Person that buys any Goods upon Credit.  These things you will I desire carefully pursue & youll very much oblige. Your Hble Servt 

      Nichos Walton

You must take care to gett a good Caller to Sell the Goods.  Forster tells me there is one Thompson at Wylam.
