Dear Skelton,

Enclosed I send you a Bill which was sent me, & ought to have been paid some time since – I am sorry Mr. Parker can’t get the Money. Mr. Blackett says he will let me know his <Resources> & what there is to pay soon, & then I will speak to the Bankers. I think if we are short I could get a few thousands here on Bond. You must act as you think best respecting the <Man> at <Culerworth>. <Senior> appears to merit encouragement & I think we ought not to let him sell it to any one else. The Surveyor of the Highways for <Cawthorne> may have that piece of land – if Ashton thinks the horses will sell better at Northaller[ton] they may go. If Mr. <Hugh> thinks the Bull in suit, & it is necessary I should have one, & the Heifer also, &you will say how they are to be got home, & give me your opinion, I will write to my Uncle about them. We are all very well & the Boys come on a pace; no <great> signs of peace as yet.

I am Yours sin[cerely]

Tho. Rch. Bt
