To Mr Rich Horne.                 				Ravensworth Castle March 20th 1743

Dear Sir

       I Reced your kind favour the Morning I came out of London & being then obliged to attend Sir Henry Liddell till after Board time.  I could not possibly wait upon Mr Corbett and you to obviate the difficulty which Mr Ellicks apprehended in our Collecting the Monthly Bill at Newcastle.   I was likewise willing to see my Ptner Mr Boag before I gave you any answer in this way, for as Mr Ellicks had been so good as say he would pay a great regard to the recommendation provided that Difficulty could be gott even I was desirous of Seeing him before I of my Self pretended to remove it.  That the Money must be collected by a person in the Custom House at Newcastle is very certain but it is a thing which will not we apprehend Require the presence of us for as we can have it done by a Person who Sitts at that Board, there will be no manner of occasion for our Attendance oftner than to See that it be properly & carefully Executed, which we shall think a Duty Incumbent upon us & we make no doubt but to transact it in that way with the same advantage to the Hospital that it has been hitherto done.       We are much obliged to Mr Corbett & your Self for this and many other favours & only beg what farther I hope is necessary for procuring a promise from Mr Ellicks for this plan when a Vacancy shall happen.  Mr Boag is present & joins with me in Compliments to Mr Corbett & his family & to you & yours & I am

       Dear Sir Yours etc

       Nicho. Walton
