Bretton Decr 1st 1798

Dear Sir,

	Col. Beaumont has been obliged to give over Ferrybridge Ball, as we propose setting out for London if possible either on Tuesday or Wednesday next, but in case of its being necessary for Mr Blackett to be introduced by a Member of the Hunt I have wrote to inform Mr William Lee & my Sister that Mr B. will be there, & I am certain they will be happy to see him. - I beg my Compts to Mr Collingwood & I own it was a great omission on my part not giving him a chance for a Yorkshire Lady, but I am very desirous that Mr Blackett should make choice of a Wife, & was afraid as Mr Collingwood has shewn so much impatience on that subject he might interfere with your Nephew, to whom our best compts.

I remain Dear Sir very sincerely yours

D Beaumont
