My Dear Madam 

      It is with great regret that I must submit to the disappointment of not going into Yorkshire, so many of my family are coming to this place immediately that it will be impossible for me to leave them, and even of Doncaster races I have a very faint hope, should I be able to come it will give me great pleasure to drive with you

      With my best compliments to the Miss[e]s Beaumonts & to Mrs Leighton and the Miss[e]s Leightons   I have the honor to be, my dear Madam

      Yr sincere and obliged humble servt.

William George Spencer Cavendish (1790-1858) was the 6th Duke of Devonshire
