To G Liddell Esqr

      Ravensworth Castle  Janry 4th 1735/6

Honrd Sr 

	We were favour’d with your kind Letter of the 29 December last acquainting us with the Hospitalls having agreed to make an allowance for quick returns or for extraordinary trouble & think our Selves infinitly oblig’d to you for your intimation what reception our Conduct has so farr mett with; it will answer our end if it is but done so as you may have Credit by it, as we cannot then fail of having some Credit ourselves.  When we write to Mr Corbett it shall be always done as correctly as time & ability will allow.  We hope Mr Ainesley is under the displeasure of the Hospitale as Mr Corbett has directed us to discharge him from acting in the name of the Hospitall without the orders of the Directors.  his encroachments lye on Langley Common & are presentable at Wark Court.

	We will enquire into the Character of Mr Simpson & Mr Pearson.

	We also observe what you say as to Corbridge & Sheldon Divisions & what you observe about Newlands & Whittenstall is very reasonable  We doubt Tennants that are able to build wou’d be hard to find.

	Mr Busbys ill usuage was principally from Ra Readhead.

	What you further require answers to will want some consideration & therefore hope you will excuse us till we returne home.  You have below a Copy of our Letter to Mr Corbett from Honrd Sr Your ever Obedt Servts

      Nichos Walton
