Dear Brother

	I received your favour enclosing a letter for my brother Harry which I sealed & forwarded, Mr & Mrs Beaumont arrived at 12 o' clock on Wednesday & left in & about the same hour the day following; I got Mr & Mrs C Blackett & their daughter to meet them at Dinner on Wednesday.

Mr Beaumont answers Mr H Erringtons letter & refers him to me; I shall write him a letter to the purpose of that I enclosed you; at the same time acquainting him that to accommodate him Mr Beaumont is willing (with the consent of Sir Edward Blackett to whom a lease of both collieries was promised) to grant a Lease to him & Mr Tulip of Wall Fell Colliery.  My Daughter & her little Girl has found great benefit from the Sea baithing which induces her to stay at Newbiggin a week longer not withstanding the weather is broke up.  

      I understand from Mr Williamson that he intends waiting on you the 14th Octr. if business does not prevent me I will be with you the day following & come out in the Carlisle Coach.

I am with Love & best wishes to Lady Blackett, yourself & Mrs Blackett
