Dear Skelton,

We returned last Night from a trip to Louth; on our return here from Bretton I found a letter from Mr. Wrigglesworth mentioning if it was convenient he would be glad to see me at his House, to consult about my Affairs in that part, and we were all at a loose end, & set off immediately, and passed a very agreeable week, I think the estate will be sold very well. He desired me to ask you this question (Is Mr. Beaumont’s settlement made previous to his Marriage, & declared to be in heir of Dower, if it is, the settlement must be shewn to the Purchasers to satisfy them thereof & if required attested copies must be given to the Purchasers if the settlement is not, a fine must be levied.) I will thank you to give me an Answer by return of post, & I will write to him, or if you think it will be more proper, you may write to him yourself. I will send you the valuation of Milnes woodd &c, by the Servant this Week. Sir Thomas & the Ladies join me in Compliments – 

I am Dear Skelton Yours most sincerely

Tho Rd Beaumont.

Mr. Wrigglesworth

Louth  Lincolnshire
