Mr Jopling                                                                     Ravensworth Castle  March 9 1735/6

	The Accot of your damages Sustain’d by Halls entering upon your Farme last May day has been laid before the Directors of Greenwich Hospitall, & Halls Charge has been laid before them also, & in answer to ours which Conveyed both, they order that the matter in dispute may be referred to two Persons indifferently Chosen, one on each Side, & it will be proper to appoint a third Person in case they cannot agree to determin it.  You will therefore consider who is a proper Person, We think the two ought to be Men that understand Country Affairs.

	There is a Complaint lodg’d against You for carrying all the Hay & Straw from off the Farm of ours at Newton Hall & that you lay all the Manure bredd from it upon the Farme you hold of Lord Oxford, we hope it is not in fact so, but if it has been we desire it may be otherwise now, as we cannot See things of that kind done any body.  If you want to be advised in any thing as to your Reference we Should be glad of doing any thing that we can for you but give us leave to desire you’ll not be unreasonable in any demands, Act the reasonable part & you will always find that we are Your Hble Servts

      Nichos Walton		Hugh Boag
