Mr Boag

      I send you on the other side a Coppy of Mr Radleys Lettr. relating the Estate at Amble in Northumberland, & on that head have only to observe that it is Strange Mr Bulman of Morpeth should be the Attorney for the King.  He has taken no notice of it to us, & we ought to have Instructions from him as there is no great deal of time to provide Evidence.  I have therefore wrote to him this day to desire he will lett us know what Care he has taken & what steps we are to take , & if you will lett me know what day you Come thro’ Morpeth I will meet you there, if we may fix what is to be done.  Mr Ellison comes to Eslington on Monday or Tuesday, & as I wrote you desires youll Stay & take Care of your harvest wch will be about the End of the Week.  Mr Liddell will be at Eslington on Monday Evening.  Your family are all well. Your Oats all Cutt & part will be Ledd to morrow.   

      I am yours etc     N  Walton
