Colonel Beaumont						Newcastle 19th March 1802

Portman square London

Dear Sir

      Since my letter to Mrs. Beaumont of the 20th Ulto. I have for want of an answer been at a loss what steps to take respecting the Surveying & the Valuation of your several estates &c. this being the proper season for that purpose.   I likewise wait for your answer respecting letting a Lease of Harehope Gill.  I have already paid about £4000 - . – on Account of the Lead Carriage to the 31 Decr. last; the Ore Carriage (Amounting to about £5000) will be paid early the next month, the General Mine & Mill Pay I propose to make on the 26th, 27, & 28th May.   The whole of the Lead sent from the several Lead Mills the last year, have been accounted for, & not one Piece lost.

      I am with best respects to Mrs. Bt. &c. J.E.B.

When the business is settled with the Bishop of Durham respecting the Leases of Kilhope, Welhope & Lintzgarth & the Counterparts left with the Bishop, you will be pleased to send the Leases to me.
