Dear Skelton,

I am just favoured with yours, and with respect to the Exchange with Mr. Cooke, as it is for his Benefit more than mine he should be at the expense. I did not understand from Walker it would be attended with any expense more than the making of the fence and setting it straight – I don’t wish to be at any expense about the exchange it had better remain as it is, as the piece of ground is so small, we may lay out as much money in the Exchange, as the land is worth – I should be very glad to accommodate Mr. Cooke, but he can’t expect me to pay for his Convenience. You had better hear what he has to say on the Subject. I am glad the Tenants have all paid – I am

Yours most sincerely

Tho Rd Beaumont.
