Dear Skelton,

I think it should be certified in the Answer, what passed between Parker, you & myself at Halifax, when he says, I shall have an Allowance made me for the Tythe, at present it does not occur to me it is mentioned. I waited on Ld. Sheffield today with an Intent to have asked him, if he can remember the estate being advertised when he sold it, and in what paper, he I know will give me any information in his power, unfortunately for me he is out of Town, if he does not come up soon, I will write to him. After the offer I made relative to a reference was rejected, it must come from them now, as it will seem too submissive on my part, and in my opinion things will work their way soon, - Mr. <Gotobed> has paid another dividend yesterday of <£7 10s>, I will call on him some day. Wm. Rud[...] is to be allowed the twenty Pounds I gave him – I w<ish> you would let Jackson copy me both your letters & Parkers which have passed on the occasion as I wish to peruse them again, and be perfect in some particulars. I imagine that Tweedale & Jackson’s affidavits must be taken as a deal depends on them. Every particular we can produce should be certified – Sir Thomas desires me to tell you, he would have you and Mr. Tweedale take such steps as you think best, respecting the Cottages – Sir Thomas & the Ladies desire their best Compliments – we are constantly engaged out we have scarcely a moment to ourselves – I am Dear Skelton

Yours sincerely

Tho Rd Beaumont.
