Dear Skelton,

When I was in Town I waited on Mr. Wentworth & he shewed me an Act of Parliament wherein mentioning that an Act had passed last Session for all Writings whatsoever concerning Moneys left to Charities, to be laid before the house to redress any grievances and to enquire whether they had or had not any complaints, so you see at any rate this affair if any must have come before the House, now as a State of this case must be laid, whether it will be necessary for your Attendance on the meeting of Parliament, and who is to be at the expense of the suit, whether it is not at the will of either party to be at any expense provided it could have been avoided, this Act coming out obliging the matter to be laid before the House, will it not become a general expense? However now there is no help for it. We have had a very pleasant Jaunt, and purpose making a little further Tour, and then returning to Town; Mrs. B. is much pleased with the Country & we were very fortunate in meeting with Mrs. Pigott – She joins with me in Compliments to Mrs. Skelton & your little Folks hoping they are all well. I am

Dear Skelton

Yours most sincerely

Tho Rd Beaumont
