      Not having received any answer to my former application to you respecting the <time> that could be allowed by the Commiss[ioners] to Col Beaumont for making his Earnings & other profits etc arising from his Weardale Leadmines.

	The Books of Accounts being still detained in London the same occasion as formerly, the Suit depending <with> the Bishop of Durham preventing the possibility of my producing the return accurately as I could wish. I will therefore be obliged by your informing me the utmost period of time the Commissioners can allow for receipt of the same.
