To William Corbett Esq 				Rav Castle November 29th, 1741


      Your Letter by last post Surprized me very much to find you had not got your Butter, but on Enquiry I find it is safe at Newcastle & will come by the George this voyage. The ship is now near Loaden & will sail about the Latter end of the Week, but I doubt we shall not this voyage be able to send you any Oates as they are advanced in our market but there is no doubt of their being down again & you may depend upon your quantity being taken care of. Your Butter will cost you no more than 22s per Firkin which is lower than it was when I recd. your last order. 

      I am for Mr Boag & Self

      Sir Yours &c Nich. Walton
