To Mr Horne							Rav. Castle Janry 17.1741

Dear Sir

      We are much obliged to you for your Intimation of the 7 Jan Inst & thank you very much for it and all other favours. We have this day wrote to the Board in Answer to Johnsons letter to which the Affadavitt we refer you, and hope the Board will be satisfied that it is an Idle Insinution from a man whose character is disposable to the World. One thing we desire & that is that you will compare the letter of Wm Turner of <Slat> House with these of Johnsons for we believe you will find them to be wrote by the same hand as there is no such place as <Slat> House or William Turner to be found. If any thing particular is said at the Board that may be fit for us to know, we doubt not but you will communicate it to us, for never was any thing more unjust than this representation is, & it would be hard that we should suffer in the Boards oppinion from any Insinuations of a fellow upon whous word no person in this Country would hang a dog.

      Our Compl[imen]ts attend your fireside & we are Yours &c 

      Walton & Boag
