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.
