No. 4 – Portman Square Jany. 21st 94. Dear Skelton, I can with pleasure say we arrived all perfectly safe & well on Sunday Evening & our dear Boy performed his Journey very well. We like our house very well only the furniture is very antique w[hi]ch does not altogether suit our Modern Ideas but in a little time we shall get accustomed to it – I have seen Mr. Bosville every day here, and this Morning I spoke to him he says he will endeavour by May to let us have the Money, & should he have more than he wants himself will assist me. The unusual cry is war, & it is currently repeated today amongst people who are high in Office that there will be no dissenting Voice. I have not seen the Bankers, I waited till I had their Answer from You. Mrs. Bt. desires her Compts. I sent the Wills - I am Dear Skelton Most sincerely Yours Tho. Rd. Beaumont I spoke to Mr. Noble about getting a Machine for chopping straw for the Cart horses, pray how is Tweedale.
