Dear Skelton,

The Affair of Stackpooles is settled, and She is to have the Annuity for her Life, & not the 10,000£. The particulars Mr. Wilson will send you tomorrow. I must confess it has not terminated in the manner I supposed, for the decision has been from the Will not being properly worded, that is, you should, as you say you knew it was the intention not to make a forfeiture left out the Clause, or have inserted it more fully, and the next by your advice we paid her the Annuity which is to be repaid, the Men of the Law in the Court made many inquiries who advised us, There were a number of Yorkshire people in the Court.

In haste Yours –

Tho. Rd. Beaumont
Not dated, but it would appear to have followed TRB’s letter of 11 April 1796 indicating that the Stacpoole case was to be tried at Westminster Hall on ‘Thurs next’, which would have been 21st April
