Mr Beaumont		Dec 17th 1823

I have been prevented writing sooner supposing that you would visit Naples first and then proceed to Rome … I have given James Briggs directions to take your horses up and get them in condition to go to London about the 20th of January ... There is little passing in the county that is necessary for me to communicate.  Hostility against yourself I hope is gradually subsiding and I trust before long something may occur to draw off their attention from that point. … Your brothers have not returned here to shoot an I suppose the season is now too far advanced to expect them.
