To Mr Pearson 					Ravensworth Castle May 4th. 1738

Mr Pearson

	Last post brought me yours of the 26th Ulto, in answer to which the Farms late in the possession of Mr Wren must continue in the possession of his Successors for this Year, as they have not Legal Notice given them before the last Term nay I think you very much to blame in the Least to Countenance the under Tennant to hope for the Contrary. They shall be relieved from any Usage as soon as we see it necessary and can with Justice do it, but they cannot expect it now.

	I am sorry to see so much warmth expressed by you out of a Disrespect to Mr King he may have little Encouragement at Brampton, but that I neither know anything of or do I think it lies before either you or me. So far as his conduct has to doe with the Hospitalls affairs I think he has not misbehaved & I must observe he once had many of your friendly offices & stood very far in your good opinion, And as I hope has given you no cause for an Alteration so I wd. Recommend it to you to treat him accordingly.  Our Bill is past the house Commons & Read twice in the house of Lords, & as the parliamt. Will rise in 14 days you will soon hear that we shall have a Court at Keswick. Pray my Service to all friends & be assured that I am Your Hbl Servt. 

      Nich. Walton.
