      N[ew]Castle 21 June 1819

Mrs Beaumont


I am this day hon[oure]d by the Rec[eip]t of yr Letter of the 18th Inst. It appears by the Books of this Office, that in Sept & Octr 1795, you were at Bretton Hall, and left it, so as to be in Portman Square on or before the 1st Nov following. – and that on the 23d Sept 8 Octr & 20 Octr 1796 Letters were addressed to Col Beaum[on]t at Bretton Hall

& on the 21 Dec 1796 a Letter was addressed to him at Portman Sq: where it appears he continued to June 1797. I can find no traces of any circumstance relating to Tweedale’s transaction nor is it probable, whatever the nature of it may have been, that it would have been known or noticed in this Office. – The run upon Backhouse & Cos Bank have I understand ceased. – It is said that the many establishments they have <formed> in the County of Durham and in this Town & Shields have excited dissatisfaction in the public mind and occasioned the run upon them. The N[ew]Castle Banks had in consequence a slight run, but confidence is again restored & all are at peace. – The <sd> case of Col Reeds papers cannot of course involve You in any Expense 	I am etc	MM
