Dear Skelton,

I have the favour of yours and with respect to the letting of the Mill to the Daughters of Parkin, I don’t think them by any means fit persons, & the plan they wish to adopt does not seem a good one. I am very happy to learn the Tenants all paid their rents. <H> Ashton thinks my little Mare will hold, I have no objections to her being covered by Mr. Wilson’s horse, and <Wildair> may also be covered by any horse he likes best. What has been done about the Tythes by Mr. <Lumly> I understand from Mrs. Vaughan he is proceeding?

Yours sincerely

Tho. Rd. Beaumont

March 4th 96
