Ravensworth Castle Sep 25 1741 To Mr Corne Stephenson Dear Sir I was telling you that a pticular friend of mine in London is concerned in a Stuff and Camblett Manufactury, which he would gladly have encouraged by the Gent in Newcastle and Gatesh’d who deal in those articles & therefore has sent me some patterns to Introduce him to those Gentlemens favours. I have herein sent you the patterns which I hope you’ll like and if the method in which he proposes to be encouraged be no way detrimental or inconvenient to you I doubt not but you will countenance it. The method he has mentioned to me is that you would be so kind as order the goods of their mark from your Warehouse men or such person as you deal with for as I understand it, they are a Company, & only proper to furnish the persons with whom you have delt, & therefore a Recommendation of their manufacture is what they want. The Goods he says are made by the best hands and are without objection, but as that is the Common Cant of all people in trade (Coales not excepted) you will judge of that & if you will be so kind as give a tryall of the goods & shew the pattrens to any of your Neighbours it will be a very great obligation, & what shall be acknowledged when ever in yr power of, Sir, Your most Hble Sert. N Walton If the Gentlemen to whom you recomend those goods be any way at a Loss to find out the manufacturers they may be inform’d thereof by Mr Richd. Horne at the pay office in Broad street, London.
