Mrs Beaumont

addressed to Col Beaumont. Bretton

      In four Covers I beg to transmit Cash Account & Lead Sales for the last three months, which Mr Beaumonts improved health, I trust, enables you to receive at Bretton. – It is with regret that I continue to notice the depressed state of the Lead Trade and that I have considered it expedient to accept an offer Messrs Wm James & Co made this day for 10,000 pieces at £24 p[er] f[odde]r for Refined. – 

      In the event of the Kings demise, a new Parliament must of necessity be summoned within Six months; The situation of his Majesty renders his Recovery almost hopeless and I beg to suggest the propriety of immediately retaining a certain number of Respectable Attorneys should it be Col Beaumonts determination to continue the Representation of Northumberland.
