My dear Lord,

      I beg to offer my best thanks for your Lordship’s early communication of your intention of retiring from the representation of the County of York, a circumstance that will I am sure be universally regretted.

      When my Agents informed me a few days since that a contest was expected, I gave orders to the same effect that I have done on former occasions –

      I have the honor to be My dear Lord Your faithful & obedt. &c &c

      Diana Beaumont

The Viscount Milton
WWM/G3/3. Diana’s signature is faltering, added at the end of a letter written in another hand. Viscount Milton was a courtesy title of the heir to Earl Fitzwilliam
