Dear Skelton,

We arrived here last Night, and have the pleasure to tell you that Mrs. Beaumont performed her Journey in a most miraculous manner, She never has had one relapse since we set out, but has been in perfect health ever since, and is now very well and looks better than I have seen her. Unfortunately for us we are informed the packet does not sail these ten days at the furthest, however we shall leave this on Friday Morning and go into that Neighbourhood to be in readyness. Give me a line just to say what you have done about Grove, and direct it for me at the Post-Office, to be left till called for, at Falmouth. We have seen this place in perfection having had a letter to the Commissioner of the Dock-Yard. I think you had better do something about the Fences at Grove, the Wood, and the outside pailing are the most material, & what have you done about a Chimney piece, the Farm house and outbuildings, to be looked over, and see what John Brown thinks about the Brewing vessels, the cisterns and fixtures we settled with you about – Mrs. Beaumont joins with me in Complimts. to yourself & Mrs. Wilson when you see her – 

I am Dear Skelton Yours most sincerely

Tho Rd Beaumont

You will buy the Hay at Grove – in the Stacks -
