Dear Skelton,

Enclosed I send you a letter from the Bankers, I have seen them this Morning, & they are engaged in the present Loan – I told them we shall want some pretty large sums this Month, & to hold themselves in readiness, I asked them if they could advance us any money, they said it was a bad time at the time they were engaged in the Loan, but desired I would let them know as soon as possible what we should want. I have made an Offer to Government to raise a Reg[imen]t of light Horse, it is to be laid before the King the next cabinet to see if he approves of my manner, it is to be no expense to Government & I am to be the Lt. Colonel. I shall hear the Kings determination about it soon and will write you word of it. Mrs. Beaumont & the dear Boy are both very well – She desires her Compts. I am Dear Skelton,

Yours most sincerely

Tho. Rd. Beaumont
