Dear Skelton,

Don’t fail to come & dine here today for Sir Thomas is really very ill, much worse than he was the other day – I am [go]ing to ride to Wakefield, you might as well [co]me soon, and then you may talk to him, he knows poor Prince is dead, but he has said nothing to us about it – I told him you had said you would come over & he said he should be glad to see you – 

Yours sincerely

Tho Rd Bt
