To Wm Corbett Esqr.						Ravensworth Castle  July 7th. 1738


	I wrote you the 16th of Jun last, and therewith sent you severall Contracts I had made for building and repairing Housing on the Derwentwater Estate amounting in the whole to £1409.10.0  which I was in hopes the Board wou’d have Confirmed, so as the workmen might not lose time or the proper Season of the Year for that sort work.

	The reason of my now troubling you on that affair is, that the Season advances fast & the Hay & Corn Harvest coming on, will greatly Interfere with the Tennants in Leading materialls, for which reason I desire you will give all possible dispatch, as the Delay will not only be attended with the above Inconveniences, but will be a very great one to the Undertakers who have provided a Number of Workmen to expedite the Work.

	Mr Boag is from Home but desires his best service to you & I am Sir Your most humble Servt. Nich. Walton
