Dear Skelton,

We leave London on Wednesday Morning next, but where we are going we are not as yet entirely determined only this I know, it will not be into Yorkshire, Sir T. goes with us, as soon as we get fixed, you shall hear from me, I have heard it said her Ladyship has offered Grove to a Gentleman – Sir T. & the Ladies desire their Complimts. –

I am yours most sincerely

Tho Rd Bt.

Monday 4 o Clock

We are going to dine at Ld. Dudley’s.

I told John Brown to get some Money from You -
Not dated but reference to leaving London and Sir Thomas suggests this came after the letter of May 7th 1790, so later in May is used here
