To William Corbett Esqr. 					Ravensworth Castle Janry 29 .1741


      We recd. your kind letter of the 21 January Inst in due course for the favour of which I beg leave to return you Mr Boags & my hearty thanks. It gives us a great deal of pleasure to find the board look’d upon the Letters of Turner & Johnson in the light they did, as they are in fact idle groundless insinuations, calculated for no other purpose but to sow Sedition & gain Mr Lowther Imployment. We think ourselves much obliged to the Board for that good oppinion and you may depend upon it we will by no means doe any Act to forfeit theirs or your favour. We must acknowledge our selves likewise greatly oblig’d to you for all favours  & for Mr Boag & self I am Sir,

      Yours &c

      Nich. Walton
