Letter – Thomas Wentworth Beaumont to Diana Beaumont – 30 Sep 1819

I have now to thank you for allowing me to act according to my own discretion in this purchase - <In> reflecting upon past circumstances I feel convinced that the estate c[oul]d not have been purchased for a less sum, & I do not think that it could have been obtained even at that price in any other manner <than> that which was most fortunately <adopted> - It is the general opinion that <Cusack> w[oul]d not have hesitated to have paid what Hodson asked. I sha

Letter – Thomas Wentworth Beaumont to Diana Beaumont – 19 Oct 1819

Blagdon. Oct 19. 1819 – My dear Mother, Although I have not yet received Mr. Wilson’s letter, Horsington’s affords sufficient ground for enquiry into the circumstances attending the pulling down the workhouse at Whibsey. Does not it appear to you very <singular>, that he should never have thought of touching it until it was so near being <c….d> in, that if he delayed a single day, you would have no longer had the power of doing so, <and> by his own stat
