Mrs Beaumont Hexham Abbey			Newcastle 26th August 1809

      I have not sold the Lead to Mr Elliott, - during the Interval of time which I required to know your sentiment, I rec’d Information that he was in difficulties and a Letter from London received this day confirms the fact.  What may be Mr Elliott’s situation or the means he possesses to satisfy his Creditors a few days will announce.

      I have taken every precaution to avoid extensive transactions with this Gentleman and I sincerely deplore, notwithstanding the present escape, that you are at all concerned in his embarrassments. However I hope not too much loss will be sustained as the drawers of the Bills are answerable for the amount.  

      I am etc  MM
