Colonel Beaumont Newcastle 7th. Decr. 1801 Bretton Wakefield Yorkshire Dr. Sir I have been favoured with Mrs Beaumont’s Letter of the 26th. & yours of the 29th. Ulto. as they did not require an immediate Answer, I postponed giving you the Trouble of a Letter. I am of Mr. Bown’s Opinion respecting Stublock Colliery, particularly should it be thought that it could be won by means of a Level from the River without having recourse to Fire Engine, & I have no Doubt that Mr. Cockshutt will be of the same Opinion. – It was my Mistake in making Application for a Certificate of Richd. Brook being living instead of Wm. Sykes, which Certificate as well as the Names of the two good Lives & the places of their Abode I wish to have as soon as convenient.- I wrote Mr Bell my Sentiments respecting the Proposals for the taking of a part of St. Oswald Colliery & I desired him to acquaint Mr. Ruddock that you was willing to subscribe 30 p[er] Cent on your former Subscription not doubting that the Duke of Northumberland & the Commissioners of Greenwich Hospital would do the like.- You certainly subscribed to Morpeth Races & I was told that Mr. Grey did the like, but I shall make further Enquiry & let you know.- I have not yet made a Sale of Lead, the London Buyers make me an Offer of £24 -10 – p[er] Fo[dde]r. I stand at £25 and am in hopes of obtaining it: Mr. Walton sold at £24 – 10 –.. Thos. Crawhall goes on Monday the 14th. inst. to the several Mines & Lead Mills with Subsistence Money for the Workmen.- I have had a Letter from Mr. Cockshutt which I have answered & send it you under Cover, after your Perusal please to seal and forward it. I am &c.---J.E.B.
