To John Airey Esqr

      Ravensworth Castle  April 30 1737


	I reced Yours but was from home when it Came, on Some Busyness wch I unexpectly had Orders for last Post; & that prevented me givg You an earlyer Answer.

	I observe what you Say as to Mr Aynesley & provided there can be no advantages taken I think it as well to acquaint the Board, before Ejectments are Served but I would not by any means have us by a delay give him any Advantage, for it is plain he will take all he can,  It will I fancie be proper that Mr Baker acquaint him that we expect he will give the Tens no Disturbance otherwise Ejectments Shall be Served imediately & unless Mr Aynesley make such a promise I think Ejectmts Should be Served imediately.

	Inclosed you have the Names of the Claimts to Haydon Town Farme & a Coppy of their Claim & the Lease they accepted of & under which they have enjoyed 21 Years, in wch you will be pleased to order the necessary Steps to be taken.  I do not know whether all the Claimts be now alive or not but Mr Bunting will Imforme Mr Baker to whom I have Wrote & you have it Inclosed.                                             I am Sr Yours etc   NW

Mr Bunting                                                                                   Rav Castle  April 30 1737

	Mr Baker the bearer hereof comes to Serve Ejectments upon your Claimants to Haydon Town Farme whose Names in the Original Lease he has, but least any of them Should be dead, he leaves the Ejectment blank till he See you, as you can Informe him who it is that now Claimes.

	He has Directions also about Dilston Mill & in Case any other Tenants such as Coates of Altonside Should refuse to go off quickly, you are to give him an Accot of their Names & he will Serve Ejectmts on all who refuse giving quiet possession.

	I hope John Bill will gett peaceable possn of Haydon but if he does not I doubt there will be no help for him till Michs Terme, I am Sorry for him.  Pray Such Tents as have not pd up be very Sharp upon, & when you Come down on Wednesday give us their Answers

      I am Yours etc     NW
