By Mr. Blackett’s direction I write to inform you, that as he understands Mr. Beaumont intends to send Mr. C. Blackett & him some venison, he desires it may be quite cold before it is sent of from Bretton, otherwise it spoils in the Carriage & that he expects it to be here by the 19th. Inst.. By the Leeds Waggon is a Box directed for Col. Beaumont, containing Guns &c. which I hope you will receive safe –

I am Sir Your Most Obedt. Hble. Servt.

Thos. Crawhall
Recipient not named but context suggests it was being sent to Bretton, and therefore probably to Mark Skelton
