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.
Undated but in sequence between those dated 1st and 29th May so mid-May is used here
