To Thomas Middllton Esq.


	The Bearers Mr Robert Johnson & Mr Amb. Hopper were concerned in the Valuation of the Derwentwater Woods & are such we think they are proper persons to go upon the Valluation of those trees which you Desire may stand. We send them on Purpose to make such valuation & beg you will either shew them the several trees or order some persons to do so. The Trees which you mention to form a Sort of Avenue are so little seen as they stand Low that we think it will be of little [Comment] to the Country to Stand but of that you will Judge, & take them in or Leave them out as you think Proper.  We are, Sir, Yours &c

      Walton & Boag
