Mr B.		Aug 27th 1828

I waited upon Mrs Beaumont yesterday at Allenheads and was sorry to learn you are unwilling that I should hold any agency along with yours.  When I appoint to it I had no wish to extend it, but since that time my family has increased beyond my expectation, beyond anything that might offer in your own family, my second son will leave school in six months when I purpose taking him into the office to assist me.  Sir E Blacketts agence at Matfen is now vacant for which I wish to become a candidate.  The property is so immediately adjoins and intermined with yours that no situation could offer which I could hold with so much felicity and I do trust that you will, with your usual kind consideration towards the wants and necessities of others, allow me to hold if the situation, should I be so fortunate as to have an offer of the appointment.
