Dear Skelton,

I wrote to you from Rome desiring you would let me hear from you at Nice, since that I have received your answer to the question I had asked you. I was sorry to have so bad accounts of the Baronet, it has given Diana a good deal of uneasiness, and I have the pleasure to tell you we have determined upon coming directly straight home, we are now on our way, tho’ she is by no means well, yet the anxiety about her Father was we to remain any longer abroad would make her still worse, and these commotions in France, are arrived at such a pitch, and are carried on to very great length in the very part we had intended going, that we might be put to a number of unforeseen inconveniences being there, that all our Friends have made us determine not to attempt it – we are not positive whether we shall even endeavour to pass thro’ France, that we shall enquire as we proceed farther on – If Diana has not further attacks of her Spasms, we shall be in England the latter end of April, but she is not strong enough to take long days, that we go on but slowly, however we shall not make any stay but just to ease her.  You might as well give me a line directed for me at chez Monsr. Perregeaux in Rue Santier á Paris, for if possible we shall pass that way, my Servant does not speak German, and as they are not very peaceable in many parts, there we may be troubled – I hope we shall find all things well when we get home, we never knew Sophia was going to be married till it was all over, I wish her well, I fancy Lee is not too rich, no more than myself, she is more likely to bring him a family, than mine. As the Baronet is so fond of <Trade> he will like the match, it will be something new. You are sure I wish to be at home, for as long as the warm weather continues, Diana will be very well, but it is the cold that affects her, - we are kept here by the Rain, and when it is clear we shall proceed to Florence – I mentioned to you in my last Diana had two attacks since we came to Rome – Compliments to all Friends Diana joins me in her Respects – 

I am Dear Skelton Most sincerely yours

Tho Rd Beaumont
