Mr Beaumont		(undated)

… pointed out to me as for the probable site of your new mansion.  We are both of opinion that the present house may be converted at so much less expense ... and that the water may be effectually banked out.  If you should be determined to erect a new house it would require many years before the necessary ground, and fluctuations could be got up.
No date given but it appears in sequence between 12th March and 5th April 1824. 26th March used here
