Mrs Beaumont						Newcastle 28 September 1807

Addressed to Col Beaumont Bretton Hall


Mr Ellill it appears had been appraised of Mr H[enr]y Hewitson’s visit to Whitby, by writing two letters on the same day, one addressed to him there, and the other here for on coming to the Office this morning I met the Brother of Mr Hewitson who came to conclude the purchase of 5,000 Pieces of Lead and 100 Casks of Litharge on Mr Ellill’s Account. Strengthened, altho not completely satisfied, in the opinion of Mr Ellill’s safety, I thought it advisable to sign a Ticket for the above quantity at last prices, and which I trust will have the sanction of your approval. Mr Blackett has put into my hands a Letter from Mr Emm a copy of which is here subjoined and I cannot avoid remarking in it a departure from that appearance of fairness, which pervades the Bishops Epistle.

      I am etc
