Buxton Saturday – Dear Skelton, I received yours, I am happy in saying we think ourselves much better for this place, and shall leave this tomorrow, and be at home on Monday Evening – Enclosed are some letters from N: Castle, which you will please to answer immediately. There is one also from Bell, he seems to think Soulsby had no right to take his corn away, he should have seen about that, I saw the corn measured in the Sessions room upstairs but gave no orders about it being taken away, nor ever heard any more said about it, I think the market at Hexham should be regulated by a Standard measure otherwise the Lord of the Manor may constantly be in litigations – you will give what answer you think proper about the Chief of Beaufront, they cannot do anything with him, as he is now under a Statute of Lunacy, and by that no proceeding can take place, Hardbottle I think should not receive a <Key>, it would shew that Errington had a right to do it – Mrs. Beaumont unites in Compts. We have had charming accounts of our dear Boy – I am Dr. Skelton Yours most sincerely Tho. Rd. Beaumont. Enclosed is also a letter from Abbott about the prices of trees at Tynemouth for plantg at Allenheads – I think we should not sell any lead just yet, but wait to see what the East India contract will do, you see Blackett wants to sell 30,000 Pieces at 16£ 10s. you will consider that in your own Mind -
Although not dated by TRB, the letter is annotated in another hand, possibly Skelton’s, as received on 28 Sept 1793.
