To: A Trevalyn Esq, Nether Witten.  	June 20th 1825

Richard Simpson was not quite a year in Mr Beaumonts service but during the time he held the situation he was sober, civil and attentive. He is a good shot and took considerable pains in destroying vermin. [struck out: ‘I believe Mr Beaumont got a little out of humour with the behaviour of his dogs’]  Mr B did not assign any reason to me for dismissing him and directed me to give him a good character.
