Mr Cook	May 4th 1824

The gent who has had care of my childrens education left last week and I am extremely anxious that they should be as short a time as possible without a tutor as I am convinced they will soon lose the little they have learnt.  Mr Beaumont the gent to whom I am land agent has considered to occupy the house I now reside in himself and I am consequently obliged to remove to a distance of four miles.
