Dear Skelton,

I have just seen in the York Paper that Grove near Ferrybridge is to be sold, it is the place where Lady Mexbro’ lived, I dare say it will be sold worth money. There are 127 Acres of land 32 of which are Wood & plantations. I wish you would make some enquiry about <it> without mentioning any Names, as I think [missing word or 2] suit me. Mr. Parker of Halifax [missing 2 or 3 words] reply to. I have been [rest of page missing: torn off] for not paying me the 10ths of tythe, the Onus probandi would lay of them, and it would cost me very little, you know best. However let me hear from you about the House at Grove as soon as you can & I will write to the Baronet. We are all drinking the Waters and bathing, that we shall all be purified from all <unright....> when we return – there is a great deal of Company. The ladies desire their Complimts.

I am Dear Skelton Yours sincerely

Tho Rd Beaumont.
