To Wm Corbett Esq.                           			Ravensworth Castle Janry 25th 1742/3


       In August 1736 the Board took into consideration a Claim which Mr Strickland made on behalf of Sir John Webb & Counsellor Pigott, to Several Household Goods in Dilston Hall and on the 9th of that Month they were pleased to order us to deliver the same whenever they were called for, & as we have reced a Letter from one Mr Richardson of Nether Witton in the County of Northumberland demanding the Same we think proper to acquaint you therewith least in so great a Distance of time;  the Board may have had any reason to alter their Order above mentioned.  Mr Richardson has a Letter of Attorney from Sir John Webb. 

       Impowering him to make Demands of the Executors of Mr Charles Busbie of Staward to the late John Radcliffe Esq and to bring actions against the said Executors for all Effects which were in the said Mr Busbies hands at the time of his Death, which belong to the said Sir John Webb & Counsellor Pigott and tho this Letter of Attorney does not Extend to the Goods in Dilston Hall, as not being in Mr Busbys possession, yet we apprehend it was so intended and if the Board have no objection we think they may be Delivered Safely.   Please to give us as early an Answer thereto as you haith Convenience can and you’l Oblige.

       Sir Your most Obed Servs 

       Walton & Boag
