To William Corbett Esqr 				Ravensworth Castle January 1 . 1741 


	Mr Thomas Airey the Capt[ai]ns Brother upon whom these two voyages have depended has used us very unkindley in not taking care to send your Butter, which we thought you had received, as he assured us it was sent and could not be Convinced but it was so till we sent one of our Servants who found it in the Celar where it was first lodged . We are heartily sorry for this desapointment to your familie but hope you will excuse it & you may depend upon having it the next voyage, which will be very soon as the George is expected in daily. We have bought your whole quantity of Oates & you may epect a part of them with your Butter, but we cannot find out your Sacks till Capt. Airey come in, please to Enquire if they were all sent. We wish you & your family the Compliments of the Season & are Sir Yours &c

	Walton & Boag.
