To Wm Corbett Esqr

      Ravensworth Castle  Decr 19th  1736


	I have a Letter from Mr Wrangham Attorney at Law in Durham, who is Mr Woods Procter in the Tyth Cause depending in the Spiritual Court at Durham acquainting me that Sentence is given for the Small Tyths At Needless hall Als Temple Thornton in faviour of Mr Moore

	I wrote to Mr Wrangham for answer the Some time Since the Directors had been pleased to order that this Suit Shoud be removed into the Court of York on Accot of the Irregular proceedgs of the Court of Durham & therefore it was necessary to procecute an Apeal to York immediately wch wll be done accordingly  In my last I acquainted you that I had been apply’d to for an agreemt wch makes me believe Mr Moore wll pursue it no further

	If it not possible Sr to come at the Title Deeds of Needless hall where probably Something of an exemption may appear for the Tythes in Dispute; it wd be of great use the Defeating of Mr Moore, as it will discourage others from Settg up for things of the Like Nature & I should Advise the Hospital to contend it Even at any Expence

	There is a demand made by John Fenwick Esqr of Bywell for one years Crown Rent Due out of Newlands & Fairle at Marts 1794 it is £9.14.4 when Land Tax is Deducted & there is also a pound of peper paid Do as an Acknowledgemt but as Mr Watson may have had it allowed I did not think it proper to pay it wthout Your orders.

	As Mr Boag will I hope leave London in a Small time I have acquainted him wth Somethings necessary to have the Boards Directions in, of wch He Is a Judge & Can Informe you more fully than I can In this way, therefore I beg leave to referr you to him & I am Sr Your Most Obt Servt
