My Lord,

      I had the Honor of Your Lordships letter some time since respecting the Division & Enclosure in Weardale & immediately wrote down to my Agents about it. I have been confined to my House for some time by an Accident in hurting my leg, but as soon as I am able to stir out I will do my self the Honor of waiting upon Your Lordship. I have the Honor

      To be, My Lord  Your Lordships most obt. & very humble Servant

      Tho. Rd. Beaumont

[on verso in Bp Barrington’s hand:]

Col. Beaumont. Feb 24 1798. I saw Col.B the same day in consequence of this letter & wrote to Mowbray by the Post. L.D.
