      In reply to the Letter with which you favd. Me;  I should be far from wishing to induce Col. Beaumont to sell his Heaton Estate by fixing some Very high Price: And indeed I think it quite out of Character for me to fix any price at all.

      If it is his intention to sell it and you are impowerd to treat and will fix a price of Course I shall be willing to give the real Intrinsic Value taking all the Circumstances together, and this is all you can wish: And Probably may be more than you will get by selling in small Lots besides avoiding an Immense deal of trouble, perhaps You will think of getting it Valued but I desire it may not be known in this Neighbourhood that anything of this kind hath passed between us. By which you will Oblige.

      Sir. Yr most hble Servt.   

      John Taylor
