Copy of Mr Wharton’s letter to Walton & Boag 	From <FennyTine>   Janry 22. 1741/2


      I am realy very much troubled since you spoke to me about what William Lowther  has most wrongfully <charged> on  me for I must assure you I know nothing of these things more than what that Idle man about 3 Years agoe told me by a Letter I had from him, and then as I remember I shewd you it. I must declare to you and the world that I am an Intire Stranger to any mismang’t in that estate and you may believe me had I known any thing you shoud have been the first persons acquainted with it I hope Gentm. You’ll not believe so Idle a person as this for I believe he has lost all Character with his Neighbours & now makes it his buisness as it has seemd to me he hath done sometime, to medle where he has neither buisness nor understanding, If there be any thing that I can be admitted to doe to acquitt myself of this wrongfull Aspersion in a more full way I desire you will suffer me to doe it & I hope you’ll, notwithstanding this vile Insinuation allow me to Subscribe my self 

      Your most humble Ser.t

      Michl. Wharton
Letter referred to in Walton & Boag’s letter to Corbett of 28 Jan 1742
