J.E. Blackett Esq, Newcastle upon Tyne					July 10th 1803

My dear Sir

[in Col Beaumont’s hand:] Enclosed I send you the copy of a letter from Mr Burdon which came Yesterday, [in Diana’s hand from now on:] I am just come from Church, & Col. B- desires I will go on with his Letter, as he wishes to write to Mr Burdon, Mr Morland & Mr Bown, by this Post, he has copied Mr Morlands Letter on the back of Mr Burdons Copy, we think it was strange Mr Burdon should ask Morlands House to send down 2000£ in small Bills on our Account, after his Letter of the 8th, I think it will explain the matter better to you if I enclose a Copy of Col. Beaumonts Letter which he is writing to Burdon at Newcastle, I really think if the Bank was to be insolvent we could make Mr Burdon accountable for the 11,000£ we allowed to remain at his express desire, but I trust there will be no occasion to bring this to Issue, as Mr Burdon gives us the Strongest assurance of their Solvency, this unpleasant Business causes Col. Beaumont & myself much anxiety & uneasiness, & I hope you are convinced we <[wod obscured: ‘shall’?] do everything in our power to relieve you, Mr Bowns expressed a wish that Colon’l Beaumont would go to Newcastle, but he has answer’d he don’t think there can be any occasion for his presence, as his affairs are in such good hands as yours & his, we shall be in town on the 13th & remain in Portman Sq- till the 1st of August – Col. B. unites me in best regards – I am Dear Sir

very sincerely Yours

D. Beaumont
