Thos R Beaumont Esqr                                                                      Newcastle 7th July 1794

        Bretton  Wakefield Yorkshire

Dear Sir	Agreeable to your directions I send you enclosed such Bills as I have received on Accot of Lead sold, amounting to £16202-9-8  Should I not get Mr Fishwick’s Bills this day, they shall be sent you in a Post or two.  I do not hear that there is any alteration in the State of the Mines since my last letter; the Lead Stewards will be down the end of this Month for Subsistence for the Workmen.

	The last Lead sold was Greenwich Hospitals at £14-15 per Fo[dde]r there is not any demand at Present, nor do I think there is any prospect of a better price during the War.

                                                                                                                           I am etc J.E.B

The Dukesfield Smelters and Carriers Project aimed to celebrate and discover the heritage of the Dukesfield Arches & lead carriers' routes between Blaydon and the lead mines of Allendale and Weardale. A two year community project, it was led by the Friends of the North Pennines in partnership with Hexhamshire and Slaley Parish Councils and the active support of Allendale Estates. It was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the generous support of other sponsors. Friends of the North Pennines: Charity No:1137467
