Mr Bird		March 30th 1825

I should have been most happy to have seen you and Mr Wm Beaumont to have taken up your quarters with me but at present we are all in confusion from workmen in the house.  The female servants however are all at Bradley and the house then in order to receive Mr G B and his bride.  I fear Mr Wm will find fishing a cold amusement and the woodcock I should suppose are all gone.
