When I reached home I found a letter from Brackenridge with an account of Mrs. B's death.   What effect this may have upon my income I do not know, but notwithstanding Beaumont's apparent friendship and regard for me, I certainly consider my Auditorship as somewhat precarious.  I much fear the old Lady's death will not increase the comfort or prosperity of her family, tho' certainly she was neither a wise nor an amiable woman.
