To Mr Jos Pearson.              				Ravensworth Castle Febry 15 2742/3

Mr Pearson

      We received your Letter of the 7 Inst as we did one from you before relating the damage done to the Mill dam at Keswick which we are sorry to hear of & Cannot say we can give directions as to the Repairs thereof till you send us an Acct of what you reckon may be the Expenses.  Consider that none of the marked Wood must be made use of so that you must gett what will be Wanted from Thornthwaite & lett it be so Considerd in your Computation.   

      As to the Road Called Castle Lane being the Kings High Road we Cannot Judge of it but from its having been presented at Keswick It appears not to have been so.   We cannot think Mr Eglionly woud be Concernd in anything of this kind unless he had good reason for it & to be sure he will do what is right and so we must Pray come to Penrith & acquaint Mr Simpson with the Circumstances of the affair and he will advise what is fitt to be done wch you will pursue.

      We have fixed the holding of the Courts at Keswick & Thornth the 6 & 7 of Apr Next against which time pray Collect all the Small Rents & Services etc & you Notice to the Tennants of the Demense Lands that we will attend the 6th of April to receive their Rents at the usuall place.  Mr King is wrote to this day <notice> you will have <precepts> from him to give Notice of the Courts. Pray acknowledge the Recet hereof & you’ll oblige

      Your Hble Servts

      Walton & Boag
