								Thorpe  13th  94.

Dear Skelton,

I have the pleasure to say that Mrs.Beaumont and the little Boy are as well as can be expected. She recovers wonderfully and he looks better every day, as he made his appearance sooner than was expected he does not appear in the same light as Wentworth did, being so much less, however he is a fine Babe & seems likely to do well. I purpose being at home on the 22d or 23d inst. I hope by that time you will have been able to procure some money for the subsistence, would not Beckett be able to procure a small Sum for the present, till some inquiry can be made, if I see Mr. Hall I will ask him he got six thousand for <Bosville>. I should <imagine> money is not so very scarce but a two or three thousand might be had, as we must have it some <plan> must be taken to have it immediately and every exertion must be used, I will make inquiry amongst my Friends for no delay can be afforded – 

I am Dear Skelton

Yours sincerely

Tho. Rd. Beaumont
