To Docter Hutchinson

      Ravensworth Castle  March 27th 1736


	Mr Pearson our Bayliff at Keswick writes us that Licewell Grein (who we take to be one of yours & Mr Watson Ptners at Thornthwait) has lately sold and delivered a considerable quantity of Lead Oare without having given notice thereof or in any manner satisfyed the Lord for his dues

	When we were at Carlisle we desired Mr Pearson might be acquainted when ever any Oare was deliver’d and you promised it shoud be so, which we rely’d upon, yett notwithstanding such notice has not been given.  We therefore think proper to acquaint you with it, and withall desire to know in what Manner our principalls are to be satisfied for their dues, We have given orders to Mr Pearson to Stop the delivery of any more Oare till the said dues are Satisfyed.

	You will observe that in the London Gazette all the Lead Mines in the manner of Alston moore or else where are advertized to be lett at Michs next, and we are to acquaint you that in what ever Mines you are concerned, you & Ptner are to hold them no longer that Michs next, but you have leave to continue working in an orderly manner till that time, if there is any Mines that you propose taking at next Michs we shoud be glad of having your proposals & are Your most Hble Servts

      Nichos Walton		Hugh Boag
