								Portman Square. March 21st 1794

Dear Sir,

      I enclose you Mr. Lloyds Opinion which was taken by Mr Cockshutt, who was employed by him when Mrs Stacpoole was made a Ward of Chancery, it was certainly advisable to know on what grounds he could act with safety, & discharge his Trust properly; Mr & Mrs Stacpoole have been twice <asked> in St George’s Church (& as they informed me) they don’t intend to be Married till she is Age, which he says will set the other Marriage aside that took place in Scotland, the Chancellor must decide on those Points, I sincerely wish Mrs Stacpoole will not live to repent her Rashness & Ill Conduct; Mr Beaumont is still in Yorkshire recruiting he has very great success, & I hope will soon return to Town; - the Report of a Riot in Paris has been believed here, but is not confirmed, I hope they will not pay us a Visit during the Summer, if they do, we shall be well prepared to receive them – Lady Ridley is recovering extremely well, the Child only lived 2 Days, - I beg my Compts to Mrs Collingwood. Wentworth is quite well, & begins to be a very Riotous little Fellow, he can say anything; - 

      I am Dear Sir Yr affecte Hble Servt
