To Mr John Ridley

      We have taken a great deal of pains to find out the Articles by wch it shou’d Appear you are Entitled to an Allowance of Timber in regard the bargain you bought was a hard one, and after all we can find no Such Article. If therefore you cannot come at it you will Certainly have no manner of Allowance on that Acct.  By a friend of Ours we have had an Application made to Mr Coulson of Jesmond, who has look’d over all his papers and finds nothing but the Article for Harsondale Timber. This therefore comes to Acquaint you that unless you can procure the Article by which it shall Appear you are Entitled, we Cannot possibly give you redress. I am for Mr Boag & Self

      Sir Yours &c

      Nich. Walton 

PS Pray give us your Ansr. as soonas you possibly can.
