Mrs Beaumont					Newcastle 21st March 1808

Addressed Col Beaumont Bretton

In this and another cover you will receive Cash Account and Lead Sales up to the end of last month and have remitted Messrs Glyn & Co £12,300, the particulars of which are here Subjoined. It is with much concern I have to announce the death of your old & faithful servant Robert Mulcaster who departed this Life on Saturday Evening: his death had been preceeded by a general debility for some days & nature appears to have made her last effort without inflicting any pain. As a tribute of Respect to his great merit I propose attending his funeral which takes place tomorrow. I presume his son John will succeed to the situation and it is but justice to add that he is in every respect fit for the situation.

				I have the Honor etc MM
