Dear Sir

Col. Beaumont left me Yesterday to attend the Duke of York’s Levée, & receive a final answer to his offers, he then goes to Bretton to see what is to be done in Yorkshire, & will then proceed to Newcastle, he appears very uneasy at the Duke of York’s keep[in]g him in this uncertain state when he ought to be employ’d, - Mr Burdon has wrote to say he hopes we will <receive &> accept Security for the greatest part of our demands on their Bank, he surely can never do anything of the Kind, the Money we must have with others, & I will agree to no offers of the kind after being so Ill used by them, I have wrote the same to Col. Beau[mon]t by this Post, to beg he will agree nothing without consulting you, they wish to impose on us, as they have done – I write in g[rea]t haste – I remain here with my Children till the 7th Sep[tembe]r – 

I am Dear Sir Sincerely Yours

D Beaumont
