John E Blackett Esq, Charlotte Square, Newcastle upon Tyne	Bretton, April 5th 1793

Dear Sir

I am sorry to trouble you so soon on the same Subject & before I could possibly have received an answer to my last, but I am apprehensive if measures are not speedily taken it will be too late, as my Sister Miss Louisa Wentworth is determined to marry Mr James Lee as soon as she can, therefore too much expedition cannot be used to place her under the Chancellors care, (if you judge that step a proper one) or any other precaution you think better to prevent her Marrying before she has sufficient knowledge of the World to form a judgment of what will most conduce to her future Happiness, Miss Louisa Wentworth has been a Month in London with Mr Lee’s Family, & is at present with them at Leeds, I expect my Sister Mrs Wm Lee at Bretton next week, Mr Wm Lee has gone to Bath for his Health, - I informed Mrs Cotton yesterday that I had written to you on the Subject of Miss L Wentworth’s Marriage, & read her the Copy of what I had sent you, she said Mr Cotton would Action any measures you thought necessary when you called on him to do so, - I shall be anxious for the pleasure of hearing from you –

      believe me Dear Sir	your Sincere Hble Servt

      Diana Beaumont

will it not be proper to shew Mr Williamson that part of my Fathers Will which relates to Miss Louisa?
