To Richard Beaumont Esq.                    				Fallodon Nov 1st 1823


      I have just received a Note from your Brother with an Apology for his Conduct towards me and my family; that Apology Lady S and myself can only accept of in consideration of our entire conviction that the accusation was made when Mr Beaumont was labouring under mental delusion, it is therefore quite unnecessary to give you the trouble of coming to this place, as Mr B’s Conduct under these circumstances neither admits of nor requires any further explanation.

      Will you be so good as communicate this to your Brother Mr W Beaumont with whom however I must decline all personal intercourse both now and hereafter.   Allow me to offer you many thanks for your good Office and interference on this occasion.    Believe me to remain

                Sir your Obed hbl Servt

                    (Signed)        J E Swinburne
