Thos Rd Beaumont Esqr           			Newcastle   29th Decr 1795

             Portman Square London

Dear Sir	I refer you to my letters by the last post with the Power of Attorney _ Messrs Surtees & Burdon are perfectly satisfied with your joining with them in the Security (in case of a seisure being made) without your giving them a Bond of Indemnity, of which I have acquainted Mr Heron _ Mr Wilson is certainly mistaken as to the inexpedency of having the Lead sold removed out of your Premises, for in case of a seisure being made & your not succeeding, they might insist on the same indentical Lead that was seized to be forthcoming.

                                                                 I am with respect Yours etc    J.E.B
