	We were favoured with yours & Observe that you are of Opinion that one of us will be directed to come to London to assist in Letting the Estates of Greenwich Hospitall, which we shall most readly acquiesce in but hope that it may be done better in the Country when we shall be both fully Imployed in treating with Tennants about their Farmes, but we will readly submit to what the Directors determine in that Case:

	On all occasions Sr give us leave to say you may freely Command us in anything we can be Serviceable in to your Selfe in this Country, and we will imediately look out for such a 

Horse as you describe, tho’ it is a little difficult to meet with such a one as they are generally pick’d up by Jockeys that deal in buying Horses for Sale & to buy one out of their hands an extravagant price wou’d ensue however in two or three Months we hope to meet with one that may answer your purpose.  In the mean time we shoud be glad to know what weight you ride.

	If we shoud meet with a horse that we think proper for you & that neither of us should come to London, we can send him by a carefull Person that may come down by Sea, or how shall doe otherwise as you direct.  & are Sr Your most Obedt Servts

      Walton & Boag
