								Hexham, Augst.10th 1791

Dear Sir,

      I recd. your letter dated July 18th after a long time at Ediningburgh [sic] where I had been travelling and visiting about in the neighbourhood at several towns and friends houses, so that I could not give you an Answer directly as I could not be determin’d upon the time of my return. However now, after the Newcastle Assizes and my own business in this country are finished, I hope to return to Bretton the first week in September, when I shall be very glad of the pleasure of your company & Mrs Wentworth & Son and I will certainly write a letter to you upon my return home and shall be extremely glad that it will be convenient to you to leave London about that time, and I take for granted that Government will never pretend to interfere with your sentiments or amusements after acknowledged Approb[atio]n – Miss Wentworth presents her best compts to you and Mrs Wentworth and will be very happy to see you at Bretton – She has been all the journey with me and will conclude with the dancing Assembys at Newcastle about the end of the month. You may have been inform’d that Mr and Mrs Beaumont are either upon Sea or at Lisbon or Oporto or Gibraltar, for we have not heard from her since she was at Falmouth. I have no news to send you from this country so wish you would write me a letter by the return of the Post directed to Hexham Abbey in Northumberland and you will oblige,

      Dear Sir, Your Most Obedt. Servant

      T. Blackett

If you see Mrs Bosville give my Love to her and tell her some contents of this letter -
