       Mr Beaumont and I find that Mr W Beaumont has already given his consent to the carrying of the road through the Ciel [sic], if it is thought advisable by the Commissioners & as we are unwilling to interfere with his wishes on the subject we regret that in this instance we cannot comply with your request and that of the Petitioners you was so obliging to forward to us; I confess for my own part I should be very sorry to see the line of road pass through the Ciel – a walk I have so often admired and enjoyed.

       I am sir your H ble Ser.t

	Diana Beaumont
