To John Aynsley Esqr

Sr                                                                                   Rav.h Castle  April 15 1736

	I am favoured with yours of the 13th Inst wherein I observe you say Hall shall be ready & willing to refer the dispute between him & Jopling to any indifferent Persons, & yett you object agt the persons nominated on Joplings behalf & agreed to by Hall.  As to Joblings insisting upon Edward Winship being his Arbitrator and no other person I am apt to believe you may be wrong informd but be that as it will I take him to be no way concerned in the dispute, & as Such is an Indifferent Person.

	Whatever objections Hall may now have to Mr Winship I am a Stranger to them, but I must beeg leave to observe that it is verry Pticular he should not have made these objections when Winship was nominated; & I think it must appear verry odd to anybody, cou’d Hall desire more than the nomination of two out of three persons, & this is actually the case, & that he also agreed to Mr Winship being Joplings Arbitrator.  It is strange he should then be an unexceptionable Man & now otherwise

	Jopling is & has since Mr Boag was at Hexham been ready to have this Affair ended & if it is not done in time it is neither his or our fault as we have done every thing on our parts to have the difference ended in an amicable manner

	As to a Tryall at next Assizes, I think neither of the partys have occasion for it, as the expence to each has been already very considerable, but if Jobling is obliged to it, he must defend

	All I can further say is that I hope you will order Bonds to be drawn & entered into by the partys, so as an end may be made, if you think it proper, but if not I shall desire your reasons agt it, so as we may lay the case before the Dirers of the Hospitall as it now stands.

                                                                      I am Sr your etc

                                                                                     N Walton
