      I have now to thank you for allowing me to act according to my own discretion in this purchase - <In> reflecting upon past circumstances I feel convinced that the estate c[oul]d not have been purchased for a less sum, & I do not think that it could have been obtained even at that price in any other manner <than> that which was most fortunately  <adopted> - It is the general opinion that <Cusack> w[oul]d not have hesitated to have paid what Hodson asked.

	I shall be glad to hear when I may expect you here, as we shall have many things to talk over – If you like to mention any day for meeting here at Bywell, I will <tell>them, & <we can> come here to a <late dinner>.

	I have heard from <Diana>, that they arrived in good time on Monday & lodged in <Hunters> House – I forward several letters for you with the three last Newspapers –

      Believe me, my dear Mother

      Your aff[ectiona]te Son

      TW Beaumont
