Dear Sir,

Enclosed is a letter I got from Mr. Jenkins which he calls an instrument for obtaining an administration to my Mother’s Will. I have read it and can make nothing in the World of it, he first says she was a widow and lived at <Keddington>, then he mentions I am her natural & lawful Son, & in short makes use of terms I know not, which makes me at a loss how to act. I would have waited on you myself, but the badness of the day prevents me, however you will act as you think expedient, and if tomorrow is fine I will call on you in the Morning. If you think I should write to this Mr. Jenkins, and you will inform me what I should say will take the advantage of this post.

I am yours sincerely

Tho Rd Beaumont

Sir Thomas says if you have no particular Engagement he will be glad to see you, as we are thin of Company, only Mr. & Mrs. <Copley> -
