Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Thomas Wentworth Beaumont – 15 May 1823

Mr Beaumont (undated) … the total estate of erecting such a bridge I estimate to be £4591. If it is made a Tole Bridge and you should consider to have it erected by shareholders I think there is little doubt but the money might be raised. Take 50 shares at £100 each as the number necessary to complete the Bridge and the approach to it and of these shares if you and Col Beaumont would each take five I do think the remainder might be made up.
