      Mr Heron has handed me you letter addressed to him on the 10th Inst requesting Col Beaumonts return of Profits asising from the Weardale Mines.

      I have to request you will inform the Commission That the whole of the Books Accounts relative to those Mines   necessary in making out such returns, are at present detained in London in consequence of the Chancery Suit with the Bishop [of] Durham. I am consequently prevented the possibility of making any return of Profits arising from these Mines in question on Col Beaumont’s Account when the <receipt> of them, which I hope may be soon, & when no time will be lost in making the necessary return .

							I am etc 		CB

      Will you please to inform me, what will be the latest day you can defer receiving this return & I will endeavour to procure it to be done.
