To William Corbett Esq.						Ravensworth Castle.   July 19 1743


       I was yesterday all day with Mr Airey Settling the Evidence to be examined upon the Tryall with Mr Algood at the next Assize & looking over two Coppys of Inquisition post Mort. upon which Mr Algood as we are inform’d greatly depends; yet as it appears to us sh’d Mr Algood make out a Manner these Inquisitions make it dependant upon the Manr of Work.  Mr Airey writes this post to Mr Radley on this head and sends him that part of the Inquisitions which he apprehends make for us that he may Examine whither the Coppys are right & least Mr Radley sh’d be abroad I begg leave to observe to you that we think Examin’d Coppys should come down with some of the Counsells Clerks or some proper person to be produced as Evidence.  But this is submitted to the Boards Consideration.  Another thing we begg you will send us down & that is Mr Algood’s Letter to Sir John Jennings dated 31 May 1742 in which he states his Case which greatly differs from his plege.  Our Assizes begin the 2nd of August next so that you will be pleased to hasten what is wanted above.  The Letter wrote by Mr Algood to Sir John Jennings you sent us a Coppy the 15 June 1742 but the original is what we want.

       Inclosed I send you the Invoice of Seventy New Castle Chalders of Coales Ship’d on board of the Mary of Scarborough.  Geo Hewitson Master amounting to Fifty three Pounds four Shillings & two pence halfpenny for the use of the Hospital with the bill of Loading & Charter Party.
