Mrs Beaumont -  Bretton Hall			Newcastle 24th August 1820

I have had the Honor of receiving your letter of the 23rd Inst. The Bills last remitted to Messrs Glyn & Co will be discountable in Nov[embe]r and I have no doubt, if required, your Bankers will readily discount them. Whenever it suits your convenience to visit the Mines, the time will be equally so to your Agents here; - the Amounts are all ready for examination. Major Anderson is not in this Town at present; from his Solicitor I learn that any applications to him to inspect the Deeds of the property sold to his father by Sir Thos Blackett would not be attended with success; but He has promised whenever occasion gives him the opportunity of inspecting the Deeds he will acquaint me with the particulars of the conveyance. I have written to Mr John Bell of the Manor Office to search for the Counterpart of the Deed, for as I had the Honor of stating to you before, there is nothing of the Kind in this Office. Mr Beaum[on]t having set off for London before I was aware He had left Allenh[ea]ds I directed to him, under cover for you, the last quarterly Report of the Weardale Mines, from whom in a few days, you will no doubt receive it.					MM

The Dukesfield Smelters and Carriers Project aimed to celebrate and discover the heritage of the Dukesfield Arches & lead carriers' routes between Blaydon and the lead mines of Allendale and Weardale. A two year community project, it was led by the Friends of the North Pennines in partnership with Hexhamshire and Slaley Parish Councils and the active support of Allendale Estates. It was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the generous support of other sponsors. Friends of the North Pennines: Charity No:1137467
