Dear Skelton,

We arrived here on the 7th after a very pleasant Journey, and are all better for the change of air. Dr. Warren has prescribed for Diana, and says he hopes soon to set her up quite stout, Sophy is quite delighted, she has been to the Opera, play house, and [missing: Pan?]theon, and today is going into the Park to see the World there – the B[aronet? - missing] is always with us, tho’ he does not lodge in the same house, he behaves to me in the most handsome manner possible, he has already made me a present of two hundred Pounds, and says when that is done I shall have more, nothing in the world goes wrong he attends us to all the Amusements – I have called twice on Mr. Barker, & on Mr. George; neither of which I found at home. I left my address, but they have never waited on me – Let me hear from you; Sir Thomas and the Ladies unite with me in their Compliments – 

I am Dr. Skelton Yours most sincerely

Tho Rd Beaumont.
24th was a Sunday in Jan and Oct 1790. Letters from London in March onwards suggest it was January
