      In Mr. Straker’s absence I write to you to inform you that the Box containing the papers you mention in your Lre arrived safe. Mr. Blackett has examined them but found most of them of no use at present, the Papers that he wanted were those that related to the Winlaton Estate &c. but is of opinion with you that they ought to be here & not at Bretton – Mr. Straker went to Rothbury the latter end of last Month; when we heard from him last week he was rather better – On board the Good Intent, Capt. Fletcher for Hull, are Shipp’d Four Casks of Lead Fume directed for Mr. Beaumont, which I hope will arrive safe – 

      I am For T R Beaumont Esq Sir Your Most Obd. Servt.

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