To Mr Wrangham

      Ravensworth Castle  Decr 17th  1736


      I have yours of the 14th Inst before me & in Answer I observe that Sentance is given in faviour of Mr Moore in the Cause dependg between him & Mr Wood, but that I am no way Surprizd at, as I always expected it woud be so in the Court of Durham.

	Some time agoe the Commissrs of the Hospital agreed to espouse Mr Wood in this Cause & determined then to prosecute an Appeal to the Ecclesiastical Court of York at that time Mr Boag & I acquted you therewth & I now Desire that it may be done, as soon as Is convenient so as we may be no way prejudiced by a Delay.

	The claiming of any Tyths for the Estate wll appear to be as rediculus, as it has appear’d in a Claim of that part wch they give up

	Mr Wood may give up wt he pleases but we shall never acquiesce in it, nor I hope when we stand by him he’ll not be so Imprudent as to throw away his right.

	Mr Downs was (& is I presume) concern’d for Mr Wood, and Mr Airey is our Attorney & Courtkeeper, but we gave no directions to any body but Your Selfe to trans Act this Affaire, & I doubt not but you have & wll take all proper Care  I am Dr Sr Yours very Hble Servt

      Nichos Walton
