Dear Skelton,

I spoke to my Friend Miss W. respecting Miss Bedford’s being a Witness and she has no objections whatever. Sir Tho. asked me if I knew whether you had finished that Codicil for him and I told him you had. I hope everything will be ready – I will call on you tomorrow Evening on my return from <them> -

I am yours sincerely

Tho Rd Bt

Enclosed is a letter from Mr.Feald respecting the Charities, I sent him an Answer I shall be at Barnsley on Monday Morning when I should see him.
Undated but mention of a codicil to Sir Thomas’s will suggest that this could have been in May 1792, perhaps shortly before his final will was signed on Tues 29th May
