Dear Skelton,

I should rather think that at this time Land would sell very badly, but if upon enquiry we could have a good price, it would certainly be better to sell Cleckheaton, than to be at any great expense in making Fences. Oliver will certainly want Land near his House and as James Greenwood until that <field> near <Crows> House I should think Oliver has a prior claim to Mrs. <Heron>, but if he don’t want it I have no objections to her having it. I will converse with Sir <I.> Sinclair about his intended Bill. We could by no means think of Mr. Bartholomew working about the House certainly, but he may draw his Money at 9d. a week – Stackpool has given up all thoughts of making any distress in Northumberland – I wrote to Mr. Blackett upon the Subject. Mrs. B and the Boys are very well. I am Dr. Skelton

Yours Sincerely

Tho. Rd. Bt.
