Mrs Beaumont 35 Portman Square London  		N[ew]C[astle] 17 June 1820



      I am this day honored with your letter of the 15 Inst & have looked through the files of Letters for the years 1789 & 1790 & there is not a letter, contained in them, from Sir Thos Blackett to the Alderman, nor does Mr Crawhall recollect ever seeing one from Sir Thomas.--  The enclosed letters from Luke Noble & Wm Tweedale were received during the above periods by which It appears Luke Noble did not write to this Office after 22 Dec 1789. – On the 26th Feb 1790 Mr Blackett remitted £2000 to Richard Noble for Sir Thos Blackett’s Account, the receipt of which Rich[ar]d acknowledges, & the remittances were sent  to him until the 31 Decem[be]r 1790 & afterw[ar]d to Mr Wm Tweedale, but in all the correspondence between the Alderman & them no allusion is made either to the health or situation of Luke Noble. 

      The Lead Trade has again become languid & no Sales are at present made. – On Wednesday I returned from the Mines & am happy to say the Weardale Mines are likely to be productive of Ore this Year  -- Allenheads will yield the accustomed quantity; but Coalcleugh will be greatly deficient without much prospect of permanent future amendment. – I did not omit to request Mr Geo Crawhall to endeavour to procure all the Cubes of Green Spar he could lay his hands upon, and am certain that he will exert himself to meet your wishes on your visiting the Mines; altho’ the existence of this Spar in the workings has long since ceased – I am etc    MM
