Dear Skelton,

      I have sent you Mr. Baily’s nomination. You have sent me part of the proposals of Mr Swallow but not the whole, as there were some remarks made on some of the Clauses which I objected to.  As to getting the Ironstone by the <heart Eye> method I have no objections to, and if they are obliged to pursue the old way & he will pay for the Land it is just the same thing. I did not understand I was to lay out 500£, I thought he was to pay all. I think the Sale of wood is very small & I greatly fear this continuation of the War will not improve the sale. I am happy to say Mrs. Beaumont & the Children are very well, we only went into the Country for a little fresh Air. I am sorry Mrs. Cotton has lent her Money to <..amb> Wood, I fear they will lose a great deal of it.

      I am much obliged to you for the pea fowl, the Prince of Gloucester was to have dined with us, but he was taken very ill. Money is very scarce here, and <sad> work in the City. Mr Wilson informed me yesterday that Stacpool’s business is to come on in West. Hall on  <Thurs> next

      I am Yours sincerely

      Tho. Rd. Beaumont
