To Mr Chas Busby

      Ravensworth Castle  Decemr 17  1736


      I was favoured with yours of the 10 Inst wherein you desire to know if I have any orders for the Delivery of Household Goods at Dilston.  In Answer to wch Mr Boag & I were Commanded at a meeting at Salters Hall the 4th August last to deliver all the goods & Furniture in Dilston house (except what were fixed to the Freehold & the writings & other papers found in three Chests) to the Executors of the Late Mr Radcliff when the same Shoud be Legally demanded & when ever such demand is made I shall be ready to obey the Commands of the Board.

	I realy cannot give you any Incouragement to think you may have the Close & House at Dilston as I apprehend it will be lett in another week.  As to Craggshields Colliery it will also be Lett to a Person who has offered a verry good Rent for it, and is an undeniable Tennant but if you had told me what you coud have given for it you might probably have Succeeded.  Pray my Service to Mrs Busby, your Nepw & Neice etc  I am Sr 

      Your etc        Nichos Walton
