To Mr Jos Pearson

      Ravensworth Castle  March 27th 1736

Mr Pearson                                                                    

	We reced yours of the 28th of February last & two Sinc none of which are answered, but will endeavour now to do it fully.

	As to the Stair Case of the Moot hall we think it may be done in either way but if the expence be near equall walling is prefforable therefore you may order that method to be pursued, in as good a manner as it can be at a Small expence, and you must agree with the Glazier on as reasonable Terms as you can.

	The Shambles being unroofed is what was never intended, nor it must not be done as the expence will be great, you will therefore only order such repairs as is necessary there, and lett only necessary things wanting in the Moot hall be repaired.  Such as repairing the roof so as it may <turn> Water Glazing the Windows and any other little thing proper to be done wch we leave to your own Judgement.

	We do not take it well to hear of Livewell Greens having deliverd any Oar without your knowledge, and tho: he says we have no right to enquire after it we will lett him understand the contrary, and you must on receipt of this discharge him at his peril that he deliver any more without Satisfying the Lord for his Dues, the Dues may be paid either in Oare or Cash, We have this day wrote to Docter Hutchinson about it.

	Scott of Stablehill acts verry imprudently in endeavouring to distress the poor under Tennant, but we have this post given Mr King directions that will quiet him, and we have also wrote to himself We are Your Humble Servts
