Gentn                                                                                   Ravensworth Castle  June 5th 1736

	We were favour’d with yours of the 12th April last, which we then did not answer, as not being prepared to give you a Satisfactory one.

	This day we have Inclosed to Mr Joseph Goodchild three Bills & one promry Note amounting to One Hundred & Forty Eight Pounds Tenn Shillings, with which we have desired him to wait upon You and you will be so good as to give him a proper discharge for One Hundred & Fifty Pounds for One Years Interest on £3000 due to the Execrs of the late Docter Hugh Chamberlain at last Lady day, from the Commissionrs of his Majestys Royall Hospitall at Greenwich & out of the Estates of the late James Earl of Derwentwater.  The 1 per Ct allowance wch you are pleased to make, we accept of as usual, in consideration of which we apprehend you expect that we run the risque of any loss by the returne, wch we agree to doe, but expect that such Bills or Notes as we Send Shall be regularly Noted & Protested as the Law directs & notice thereof given to us.

	Our Principals expect that Such Persons as we pay this Interest to, Shall be Legally Authorized to receive it, you will therefore be so good as satisfye Mr Goodchild in that Pticular.

	We Shall be glad for the future to have no other trouble than to remitt the Interest directly to your Selves, & in order that it may be so, we Should be glad to have a generall order from the Executors to pay the Interest to you till they Countermand it.  

      We are Gentn  Your most Obedt & most Hble Servts

            	Nichos Walton		Hugh Boag
