To Mr Man, Clerk of the Peace at Durham 			Ravensworth Castle April 14th. 1738


	I had a letter by last Post which came to my hand only last night, from Mr Andrew Scott a Tennant at Scremerston near Berwick but in the County of Durham, acquainting me that he and the rest of the Tennants of Scremerston have been lately presented for not mentaining some of the high road which they are liable to mentain and keep in repair, now as my Letter came so late I had not an opportunity of waiting upon you, so as to stop any proceedings against them at the Sessions and therefore I take the liberty now to acquaint you with it, and withal to desire you will putt a Stop to any further proceedings against Mr Scott and others, as they are all willing and ready to putt the road complaind of into good repair. This they offered to do but could not be heard by the Gentlemen who has given them all this trouble; whatever charge has accrued in that you shall be at in putting a Stop to these proceedings shall be thankfully repayed you by me and your favour therein will greatly oblige Sr, Your very Hble Servt.

      Nich. Walton
