Letter: from Sir George Howland Beaumont (1753-1827) to Mr Faithfull

Scope and Content

My dear Sir, I cannot allow my little boy to return to you tomorrow, without expressing my ____ approbation of his conduct in every respect - Such also, is, I assure you, the feeling of the Archbishop & Mrs Howley - with whom he has spent the last week of his holidays -never was there a more amiable, delightful companion, & you will believe me when I say that I shall miss his society very, very much. He possesses that capacity (unusual) in boys of his age/ of always finding occupation for himself, either in books or amusements - I thank God, I have such a child, to be a comfort to me, after the death of his Angel Mother - I would first mention, there is no occasion to send any books home with him, as I have an abundance of every variety ___useful, _________& entertaining - Pray convey my very kind regards to Mrs Faithfull, & Believe me very dear Sir. Very truly Yrs.Beaumont
