Mr Pearson                                                                 Ravensworth Castle  Febry 6 1735/6

	Yours of the 28 January last came to hand & we observe the Contents & thank you for your care & diligence in detecting the Villany of Scott the Tennant at Stable Hills.

	As the fact is very plainly prov’d upon him, and as he ought to be punished for it, we desire Mr King may Sue him for a Tresspass or if he shall think it otherwise proper that he will proceed against him, so as it may not only be a Terrour to Scott but to all others.  We wou’d have Mr King to proceed in such a manner as tho Expence may not be very great to Scott, and so as we may if thought proper withdraw the prosecution at pleasure, we only mean in doing this to terryfy others from the like practices.

	Isaac Todds Letter is come to hand for which you have our Thanks, & you may be assured that proper notice will be taken at all times of your good Services.

	John Fisher complains that it was on Accot of some ill usage from you that he gave up his Farm, which did not at all appear to us in the manner he did it; we wou’d however be glad to know if you and he had ever any difference & whether you ever threatened to turn him off his Farm.  We have had a Complaint of it from the Hospitall, but we have sett it right with regard to you as farr as we knew the Affair.

	Pray pay Mr Graves for the potts of Charr & you’ll Oblige Your most Hble Servts

      Nichos Walton 	Hugh Boag

PS Pray present our very humble Services to Mr Christian & Mr King
