To Thomas Middleton Esq.


	Last Post brought us a Coppy of a letter from the principal Gent[le]men of the County of Northumberland to the Rt. Honble the Lords Comiss[ioner]s of the Admiralty requesting that some Trees on the Derwentwater Estate in and about Meldon may not be sold but left standing as an Ornament to the Country, Which Letter was by their Lordships Commands laid before the board of Directors for Greenwich Hospitall  who have Ordered us to Report to them the Value thereof.

	We therefore take the liberty Sir to give you the trouble of this to be informed whether it is the Whole or a part of the Woods in and about Meldon Township which those Gentlemen have desired may Stand, as in case it is only a part, it will be Necessary  that such part be Valued Separate, by the Powers who were concerned in making a Valuation of the Whole. If it shou’d be convenient to you to shew what is requested by the above Gentlemen, we shou’d be glad to wait upon you when ever you will fix, or send the valuers at the time you will please to appoint. You will please to Observe if it is the Whole which is desired may stand, you need only signify to us that it is so as we have a valuation of the Whole. Your answer by this bearer we hope will enable us to make our Report on Friday & we are Sir

      Your most Obd Servts

      Nicho’s Walton  Hugh Boag
