My dear Mother,

	I have received this morning the enclosed, and tho’ the request is <very complicated> from Hexham, I do not see anything objectionable in it. The consideration of promoting idleness I should not think worthy of attention, for it is always better that an Open & ostensible mode of employing idle & leisure hours to <have ……> than the secret means which are always more prejudicial to the fortune & character of the Individual.

	Other considerations of Policy may also induce you to grant the ground, as during <our> absence opportunities seldom occur of sustaining our <influence> in the Town – I think therefore that you should write & request me to write a civil letter to the Committee <complying> with the request & stating your pleasure in contributing to promote the amusement of the Gentlemen of Hexham, for whom you always entertain much regard

      I remain, my dear Mother Your affectionate Son

      TW Beaumont  

[addressed to:] Mrs Beaumont Bretton Hall Wakefield
