To Mr Alder Clayton

Sr                                                                             Ravensworth Castle  March 9th 1735/6

	From the Conversation we had with you about the Bob Engine & other Conveniences (for working your Colliery) in the Liberty of Hartburn Grainge Estate we realy expected you would have come to a resolution what Rent to pay to Greenwich Hospital.  We are determined & directed that no Bob Engine or any other thing Shall be erected or any already Erected Shall continue there without paying a reasonable Satisfaction to our Principals & therefore have given directions to turn the Water off the Engine, & it will be done in a few days unless we hear from you & in a Satisfactory manner.  The Rent we expect is £6 per Ann which if you are willing to give, we will lay it before the Directors, whose answer we will wait for before any thing further is done.  Your Answer to this by the bearer is desired by 

          Sr  Your most Hble Servts  Walton & Boag
