Since my arrival in Town I have seen General Prescott, who is within a few days of his departure for his appointment as Governor of Quebec, & as I understood from my Clerk who just before I left Yorkshire for the South, waited upon you upon another Matter of Business, that you had something to say or do, respecting the General’s affair between him & Mr. Beaumont, but that then you had not time for it. If therefore there is anything <essential> to his Int[eres]t that you think might be right to communicate to him or me before the General leaves this Country; you will have the Goodness to do so as soon as you are <prepared> for it.

I am Sir Your most Hble. St.

Frs: Edmunds
