My Dear Sir

I observe by the morning post of this day, that the Duke of Northumberland has gone down to Alnwick, I will be much obliged to You to inform me whether it is imagined he will call a County meeting for the purpose of addressing his Majesty, if he should whether it will be necessary for me to attend, as I expect daily to be called upon to Town having offered my Services, & w[hi]ch I understand are excepted by H.R. Highness  the Commander in Chief, Mr Beaumont wrote You very fully a few days since our anxious wishes to contribute to your case.  She unites with me in best regards to Yourself & Mrs Collingwood.

I am My dear Sir Most Sincerely Yours

Tho. Rd. Beaumont
