Dear Skelton,

I am just favoured with yours, and am sorry to say no more than 1500£ was bid for the house. With respect to the 25,000£ to be paid in the beginning of September, I am greatly at a loss to know what to do about it, Mr. Blacket is our main stay in those matters, if he fails we shall all be aground, you must endeavour to do all that you can to procure us some, at any rate the subsistence must be paid, and all exertions must be tried if some cannot be found. I <expect> Child cannot have his discharge when no account he is returned upon the Strength of the Regiment & it is too late – I am D[ea]r Skelton

Yours sincerely

Tho. Rd. Bt. -
