To John Airey Esqr.                             	Ravensworth Castle  December  17th  1746


      As Sir William Middleton was unwilling to deliver the Derwentwater Writings without some application and Authority from our Board we have wrote to him this post & the Board likewise on that Subject so that we apprehend an Immediate application will be made to him.  If therefore you will be pleased to Speak to Sir William it will undoubtedly forward the affaire & in that case it may not be improper for you to advise with the Board what sort of an authority or Indemnity it may be proper for them to give.  This you will Judge of & act in it as you See proper.

      It wou’d give us verry great pleasure to hear you have got strength in your Arm and that you are free from pain & that you may is the Sincere wish of 

      Sir yours etc

      Nichos. Walton    Hugh Boag
