Dear Skelton,

Enclosed I send you a paper that was found in the office respecting the Money that I mentioned to you, as perhaps it may be of some use to you, but from what I learn the Money if due to us, would scarcely pay the Expense. In a letter from Sophia to day James Lee has been served with the Letter from the Chancellor, & they are all damned angry about it, she does not say much, but they are astonished Louisa has heard nothing about it, now he has been served with a notice, I hope they will not proceed in the manner as was first mentioned in Cockshut’s letter, as I imagine every end is answered by that notice to him, or will they settle a certain allowance for her, and let the surplus go to accumulate – I think every end is now answered & the less expense we are at the Better – if the process can now <slow>, all we want is obtained, and no further expense need be made, as he now can’t run off with her. My dear little Boy is assisting me to write this and is in high spirits. I wrote to you yesterday –

I am Dear Skelton Yours most sincerely

Tho. Rd. Beaumont.

Our house is not quite <so> large as Bretton & tho’ we are 15 in family and not two rooms in a floor, yet we are very comfortably lodged, it is a peculiar mode of building here -
