Dear Skelton,

I called yesterday on Mr. George, and found him at home, he said he had heard from you, and that the Answer would be sent immediately. I make no doubt as he is an Agent for you of his Abilities, but his conversation and his reception are very much against him. I talked to him about Sir J. Scot being retained on my part, he agreed with me, that he had great weight with the chancellor, but yet did not seem to wish to have him. If you can recommend any person that will be more proper to retain as Council let me know. He is highly recommended to me, as being a Favorite of the chancellor – which I should think is all in our way.

Yours most sincerely

Tho Rd Beaumont.
