Dear Sir,

I was exceedingly sorry to hear of the Misfortune you had with a Horse, but as no bones were broke, hope you will soon recover. I would have wrote to you sooner, but my Friend Shelley who is travelling with me is only just arrived, that I could not give you my Address, the first place we shall make any material stop at, ‘till we reach Italy, is Nice, and in case I should be gone when any letters arrive they will be forwarded with <Care>. I shall be obliged to you for your Assistance in the Money way, as soon as is convenient to You – I was in hopes of hav.g had the pleasure of shaking you by the hand this Winter but the Fates have otherways decreed it, but hope ere long to see some happier days than at present, however I hope everything is for the best. I [am] informed my Servant has sent a Foal to your House if so, should be glad that it should remain all winter. I hope Mrs. Skelton and all my little Friends are well, to whom I beg my best Respects –

I am Dear Sir Yours most sincerely

Tho Rd Beaumont
