Mr Beaumont		July 23rd 1823

Mr Kyle has been to look at the situation of the intended bridge but the river was too much swollen ... The gardener at Bradley has received a letter from one of your servants requesting a person may be got to assist Mary the Dairymaid to put the house in order and that you may be expected there in ten days or a fortnight.  As I have received no intimation of your being so soon at Bradley I conceive there may be some mistake and shall wait your own instructions ... Simpson has not taken his dogs to the moors and <waiting> your directions.
