Mrs Beaumont Hexham Abbey				Newcastle 19 August 1809

      In this and another Cover you will receive Cash Acct  and Lead Sales for last month  Since my return from the Mines Messrs Locke & Co of London have enquired the price of 40,000 Pieces of WB Lead (concerned as I have good reason to believe with Messrs Watkins Maltby & Co). I have named £32 for Refined and £31 for Common and expect an answer on Monday.

      Yesterday Mr Elliott offered by his agent here, £30 for 10,000 Pieces but I deferred giving any rely to them ‘til the latter end of next week under the pretence of consulting Colonel Beaumont and that some days would elapse previous to an opportunity of seeing him.  This you will perceive Madam, will give a choice of the two applications, and it would be satisfactory to me, to possess your sentiments, both as to the price offered by, and of your inclination to sell to Mr Elliott.  

      I am etc   MM
