To Wm Corbett Esqr 					Ravensworth Castle Decemb 31 . 1741

	We would have answered that part of the Boards Minutes of the 16 Inst relating the Derwentwater Woods sooner, but that we waited to be throughly Inform’d whether there were cause for the Complaint which has been made to the Board.  We have examined as narrowly as we can both the woods & the Conduct of the Bailiffs & Cannot find Cause of Complaint & we realy believe  no Woods in the Kings Dominions are freer from Trespasses than the Derwentwater Woods are, it has been & always shall be our Constant Care to doe our Duty & to see that every one under us doe theirs, & as farr as we know there has been no neglect & to prevent every neglect for the time to come we beg leave to assure the Board of the Constant cares of Sir Yours &c

	Walton & Boag

Mem[orandu]m. Inclosed to Mr Corbett the note wch Richd. Morrison took of the London Carryer when he d[elivere]d him the Box with the Derw[entwater] Vouchers.
