Dear Skelton,

I had a letter this morning from Mr. <Hebden> which I enclose you, and also one from Geo. Beaumont, and shall write to them both: as to the latter I could not make him any Grant of the Wastes, for if it will pay them so amply, it will also pay us in like manner, so that I wrote to Blackett about them, & enquired if they did Make use of those Wastes – Geo. Bacchus came up this Morn[in]g & says Wentworth was at Bretton, but going to <Netherton> a shooting – the Answer I have wrote to Mr. <Hebden> is I am sorry I cannot have the pleasure of attending the Committee, but I have requested the favour of you to attend for me – Monday the 5th – I have the satisfaction to tell you that Diana presented me with a Son this Morning at ¼ past eleven, and happy I can say that She & the Child are as well as can be expected –

I am Dear Skelton Yours most sincerely

Tho. Rd. Beaumont 
At the end of this letter Beaumont informs Skelton of the birth of his first child  (Thomas Wentworth Beaumont)
