Mrs Beaumont 					Newcastle 22 April 1808

Addressed to Col Beaumont Portman Square Lo:

I now beg to enclose Mr Dickinson’s report of the State of the Mines and the Bargains made for the ensuing Quarter & have much pleasure in acquainting you that I yesterday effected a Sale of 7,000 Pieces of Lead at £25 & 24 Per fodder to Mr <Knowsley> of Hull who makes this purchase purely as a Speculation and with a view of being able one day or other to export it to a foreign market. I derive by such men coming forward great hope that an improvement in the minds of regular Lead Merchants will be produced favourable to our future transactions & which every vigilance on my part will be exercised to empower 

		I am etc MM
