       Yours of the 22nd I rec[eive]d on Monday last and am glad the damage at Nattrass we got settled but sh[oul]d have been also glad to know how much they were settled at for each Company and what is proposed to be paid for the Ground which has been destroyed and the quantity of Ground destroyed and how much it might be worth <pr Ann pr Acre> to be let to a Tenant before it was damaged. The matter as to the Cattle has just proved as I expected. The sooner the Quarters Acc[oun]ts are got made out the better. The Proposal for Rodderup Cleugh is re[ceive]d and the whole of the Proposals lately signed have been sent to Greenwich Hospital.

I shall be there from Friday Night the 5th till Tuesday at Dinner the 9th of next Month and at Haydon Bridge the three following days. Deliver the inclosed to Mr Hunter immediately. I am

       Your h[um]ble Serv[an]t

       Nich Walton Junr

The Ore Carriers must not allow their Galloways to Graze in Alston moor and they sh[oul]d have them muzzled. I think it will be right for you to meet me at Langley Mill on the 5th of July and desire you will be there ab[ou]t 5 o Clock in the Afternoon & then you may if there is occasion set forward homeward early the next morning.
