Dear Skelton,

I am very happy to find you all keep well, I have had a very bad looseness for this last week which has kept me at home, but am now getting better. I am glad you have seen Mr. Wood, he I dare say would be very much inclined to Sir John Scott, he is said here to have more weight with the Chancellor than anyone, [missing:  her] Ladyship, I am afraid may have retained <hi>m, or I should think he would be very proper for <us>, tho’ Mr. Wood will most likely say something. I <will> send to Mr. George to let him know I will wait on him when he is ready to receive me – we have left Ld. Macdonald’s and are all in the same house together which makes it very pleasant, the Apartments are very good. I have just got a letter from Mr. George, mentioning he has retained Sir John Scott, and he will let me know when he wishes for my Attendance – I hope you will send all the papers that are necessary that Sir John may be fully satisfied with all the letters and the Agreement I signed with that you wrote on the back of the agreement – Sir Thomas & the Ladies join me in Compliments – I am Dear Skelton

Yours most sincerely

Tho Rd Beaumont.
