Dear Skelton,

I was favoured with yours on my Arrival in Town, where I went for advice for Diana, the Physician wished to see her, she is much as she was, but we are told these Waters are of infinite Service to people in her Way – I have taken a house here for one Month, from the 8th inst. and are determined to give these Waters a fair trial – If you should think it will be necessary for my going up to Town, respecting Lady Mexbro’ business, when you write to Mr. George, desire him to write to me as above & I can come up at any time. By this time I suppose you have seen the Baronet, & Tommy and him have had some conversation, I am sorry he has appeared so dejected, we have wrote several letters to him, & he never answered them – this place is damned stupid indeed – the Ladies desire their Compliments – 

I am Dear Skelton

Yours most sincerely

Tho Rd Beaumont
