Mrs Beaumont under cover to 					Newcastle 25th April 1804

Colonel Beaumont Portman Square, London

Dear Madam

      I yesterday wrote to you & enclosed three Bills drawn by me On Doubleday & Easterby accepted payable in London, amounting to	 £2,977-4-7 . I now enclose you nine Bills (particulars at foot) amounting to £25,479-18-5 they are all fully endorsed by me payable to the Order of T R Beaumont Esq.as required by Sir R[ichar]d Carr Glyn. Mr Parker has I think behaved in this business in a very unhandsome manner, having neither sent me the Bills that I required of him, or called on me to assign his Reason for not doing so, in consequence of which I have (agreeable to what I told him on Monday last) drawn the several Bills on Walkers Maltby & Co. amounting to £{11,474-0-5} advising them of the same, & likewise on the same on the account of Walkers Parkers & Co for the amount of £6,405-0-5 agreeable to the Contract entered into with them, which I hope may be satisfactory to Sir R[ichar]d Carr Glyn & Co. 

	I have by this day’s Post been favoured with your Letter of the 23rd Inst. enclosing a copy of Mr Davison’s Letter tp Colonel Beaumont; it appears plain, that they (the Comm[issioner]s are ashamed of what they have said & done. I am very happy in finding that from the letter, that I had wrote Sir R[ichar]d Carr Glyn & Co. they appeared to receive more Satisfaction & to have more Confidence in entering into this Engagement; it is likewise a great Satisfaction to me, that you & Colonel Beaumont are perfectly satisfied with my Conduct in this Business. I hope that the Terms proposed by the Bank of Sir W[ilia]m Loraine & Co may be acceded to by that of Sir R[ichar]d Carr Glyn & Co: I mentioned in a former Letter that the Country have not that confidence in the Newcastle Banks, that they had before the Stop of the Bank of Surtees & Burdon when their notes circulated in the Country for some Time, whereas at present three parts of them are likely to return to them in the course of a very few Days; I observe what you say as to Mr Bosvilles Rents etc & that you have accepted of the Loan of £18,200 of Mr Hall to be replaced a xmas, which I hope that you may have no Difficulty in doing.

	I sincerely hope that this may find you very much better & that you & Colonel Beaumont will set your Minds at Ease as to this Business being got well over, and to your satisfaction.

	Some private Business of my own obliges me to be absent from home for four Days. I go on Sunday next, & return on the Wednesday following; T Crawhall will open & answer any Letters of yours by the Sunday & Mondays Post.

			I am etc. J.E.B.
