Dear Sir,

I was favoured with yours yesterday, and am happy to find you & Mrs. Skelton & my little Friend are well. With respect to the Tythes at Darton they may rest till I return which I hope may be in October but am not as yet certain what may happen, but I hope for the best. I am much obliged to you for the hint respecting the Will & Deeds of the School at Darton, I have wrote to Mr. Fisher to desire he would give me the Will & Deeds respecting Flocton Poor & Darton School, and as I told him I have employed you to make a Schedule of my deeds &c have requested you to call on him for them, as he told me he had them before my departure. I have enclosed his Letter to Bent to save him the postage. I am very much pleased with my Journey, the Country is very fine, but the difference of the Money puzzled me a great deal at first. This is <a water> drinking place there are a number of English and we have good society dancing and everything a Young Man could wish for, Excepting Spirits, which are what I want. I am going into Burgundy tomorrow and from thence to Paris, where I shall be happy to hear from you, I hope Mr. Fisher will give you the Deeds. I am with Complimts. to Mrs. S. & Family – Dear Sir /

Yours most sincerely

Tho Rd Beaumont
