Mrs Beaumont


It is with my sincere feelings of regret I have the painful duty of announcing to you the melancholy death of your invaluable Agent Mr Morrison, who expired suddenly yesterday evening – he had been occasionally unwell for sometime past, but particularly so since his last return from London, having experienced a very violent attack in his breast the morning after coming home; he however continued to take exercise in a Carriage or on horseback but could not bear walking with[ou]t suffering excessive pain. he was better than usual yesterday & went 5 or 6 Miles into the Country & continued well until going to Bed about 10 0’clo[ck] after which he slightly rung his Bell, when  his Servant found him in the Agonies of death. Medical Aid was immediately procured but could be of no avail. – His complaint was Angina Pectoris under which he had laboured for years past rendering life very precarious & with which he was strongly <impressed>. I can only add my unfeigned condolence on his loss (not easily replaced) and to assure you that every care will be taken for the protection of your important Concerns in this quarter until your pleasure is known as to the future – and have the honour to remain Madam your faithful & Obed[ien]t Serv[an]t  Tho. Crawhall
