Dear Sir,

I was favoured with yours yesterday mentioning that was I to return by the latter end of October it would be time enough to go on with the Charity business, but if the papers are ready to be executed the delaying of the Business will be attended with more expense, & as the people will be anxious for their Money, I should wish to have it settled as soon as it possibly can, as I can attend when ever you shall have every thing ready, as we have no engagement to hinder us therefore let me know by return of post whether my coming down immediately would not hasten the finishing of it, as both me & Sir Tho. think the sooner it is settled the better, as to the purchasing any land I can say nothing about that as you know I am not in any situation to purchase any land. I only want to set myself at Liberty with respect to these disagreeable Affairs, as they have waited so very long for their Money I am anxious to have it settled & Sir Tho & I can settle about the money, let Me know what the money will come to. Sir Tho. desires you will tell Mr. Noble that he has fixed no time for his coming home & desires he will write to him again, and to send some fine Apples here if there are any ripe –

The Family here join in Compliments –

I am Dear Sir

Yours sincerely

Tho Rd Beaumont.

If there is to be a Meeting of the Trustees they should be spoke to as I am anxious to have it settled immediately – write by return of post -  
Recipient not stated but content and sequence with other letters strongly suggests it was to Mark Skelton
