Dear Skelton,

Enclosed I send you a letter from Mr. Blackett, & I wrote him for ans[we]r that from the Statement of the Land, and the opinions that had been given on the Subject it appeared to me that the Ground &c should be purchased. I also required he would let me know what mon[e]y would be wanted. I wrote to Mr. Stephenson & he will shew You my letter when should the Leases be signed whether they are for a Year or otherwise. We are all well here –

Yours sincerely T.R.B.

Undated and difficult to date. There is no obvious letter amongst the many from JEBlackett to Beaumont relating to a possible land transaction. Mention of Stephenson might indicate that it followed earlier correspondence with him in July 1793 and this letter it has been provisionally dated accordingly
