Letter – Thomas Wentworth Beaumont to Diana Beaumont – 17 Jul 1819

Scarborough. July 17. 1819. My dear Mother, I have heard this morning from Thomas that the sum asked for the Bywell estate is one hundred & Twenty thousand Pounds, excluding the Timber, the value of which is proposed to be fixed by two indifferent persons – He adds ‘I do not think this price very extravagant, but I think it may be bought for five or six thousand Pounds less on immediate payment of the Purchase Money. I cannot help considering this an object worthy of

Letter – Thomas Wentworth Beaumont to Diana Beaumont – 23 Jul 1819

My dear Mother, I was very sorry to find from your letter of the 20th that the weather was so unfavourable during your stay at Rokeby – Miss Morritt told me last night that her Brother wd <feel> the disappointment much more than yourselves, as he has great pride in shewing the beautiful scenery in his neighbourhood. You shall have all the details you wish for, upon my return to the North. I have been unable to ascertain the exact value of the estate for fear of discovering the

Letter – Thomas Wentworth Beaumont to Diana Beaumont – 5 Aug 1819

Dissington Hall. Aug. 5. 1819. My dear Mother, I am anxious to receive a letter from you, by which I may know how and where you intend passing your time until you visit the Duke at Blair; you will probably have left L[or]d Kinnoull’s before this reaches you as that is the last <house>, to which you have <...........> me. When you are at Taymouth I hope you will not fail seeing the numerous waterfalls in the neighbourhood, which are the finest in Scotland. I h

Letter – Thomas Wentworth Beaumont to Diana Beaumont – 8 Aug 1819

My dear Mother, Upon my return from church this morning at Ryal I found your note of the 6th upon my table and am extremely obliged to you, whatever may be the result, for your consenting to allow Thomas & me to make Hodgson an offer – I am disposed to hear from some conversation that I had with William Grey the other day that he has gone too far to <retreat> altogether without making Hodgson some offer for the estate – If they do not agree, I shall avail myself of

Morpeth Sept. 7. 1819 My dear Mother, I shall be delighted to see you at Dissington on the 20th or any day after that which may suit you. A few friends William Grey, <Bell> &c are coming to me on Thursday the 16th, who will probably leave me on Saturday or Sunday; If Sir William Scott stays in the North till that time he has also promised to see the inside of a Bachelor’s House, as he has paid a visit to most of the married Men in the neighbourhood of Newcastle and

Letter – Thomas Wentworth Beaumont to Diana Beaumont – 22 Sep 1819

Dissington. Wednesday night. My dear Mother, You will already have heard from Thomas the answer that he received from Mr. Hodson on Monday – When his letter reached me on Tuesday with the information, you will imagine that I was very far from being pleased, <&> had left Bywell without a positive acceptance <or refusal> - Hodson had in fact gained his object if the <matter> was <allowed> to remain in the <state> Thomas had left it, as he could then sel

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 – 11 Oct 1819

Dissington. Oct. 11. 1819 My dear Mother, As I find that Hardy has taken up the case of the workhouse that Horsington pulled down at Wybsey, I should be very glad to see his letter to you upon the subject as well as Mr. Wilson’s. I believe that is the name of Miss <Currer’s> relation – Will you enclose them to me as soon as you have time, for I <fear H.>, of whose discretion I have a very low opinion, has led you into a scrape – I will write to you again a

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

Letter – Thomas Wentworth Beaumont to Diana Beaumont – 24 Oct 1819

Dissington Hall. Oct- 24 – 1819 My dear Mother, I have now to acknowledge the receipt of three letters from you, that arrived I think by successive Posts – I am sorry that Horsington has has [sic] been able to convince you of his own propriety of conduct – Mr. Wilsons assertion that your consent, by which of course he means your Agent’s, was asked is certainly a sufficient ground for you to have an enquiry made of the trustees by whose direction the <barn> was e

Dissington Hall. Oct. 31. 1819 My dear Mother, I have received from Fenwick, to whom it was sent by Mr. Pearson, the heads of the agreement as proposed by Hodson - There is hardly a clause in it which is not liable to an objection, or which will not require an explanation – I have referred that part of it which regards the land to Thomas, & that which respects the forms of law to Fenwick; When I have their answers & seen them both at Newcastle, which I propose doing o
