Dear Skelton,

I have the pleasure of yours, and am very happy to say that we all go on very well, our dear Boy has bathed twice and it agrees with him very well. It is very odd what can become of Phipps opinion, no account can in any manner be given of it here. We have not heard any more about Sir John’s claim that I hope will subside, I do not see myself the absolute necessity of a Gen[era]l Retainer unless we have some reason of supposition, & in that case I think Sir John would have retain’d the ablest Men, if Mr. Wilson has some Idea that they will alter the Grounds, which I wish he could inform himself about, then it would be absolutely <requisite>, but as you are more conversant in this matter than us, we leave matters entirely to your discretion. I hope now Mr. Lee has been served with notice, that everything will now stand as they are, as every purpose is now obtained, we don’t want him to have her Annuity curtailed. As to the N. Castle accounts, I can say no more than before, I <dine> there tomorrow & will make some more inquiry – the Cottons don’t seem to have mentioned any terms nor price of their Estate. I will write to Hammersley this post. I am glad they are getting on with the Chimnies, I have payed Mrs. Walker her 362£. 10s. she drew as before for it on the Banker, I sent Maria hers also, they must credit me in the account. I have no objection to the Security you mention for the Money, and it may be put out to your client – I wish you would let me know when they fix a price on the Haigh Estate, what are their terms and when the money is to be paid for the Cash purchase, and whether you will want the papers I have looked up, & if you think my being at home for a few days would hasten them in getting forwards with the House, we have nothing here going forwards that requires my attendance if I can be of any service at home.

Mrs. Beaumont unites with me in Compts –

I am Dear Skelton Yours most sincerely

Tho. Rd. Beaumont
