Dear Skelton,

I suppose before this time the Rent Day is over and that every thing was conducted with satisfaction to all. Enclosed I send you a letter I this morning received from Mr. Jackson, I do not see how any person can undertake what he says, to allow the Girls 30£ a Year over & above the Rent, and when they come of Age to resign the possession – the letter is wrote in a pedantic style and without giving in any Name  - do make some enquiry about this Matter, and tell me what you advise.

Yours sincerely

Tho. Rd. B.
