Mrs Beaumont

addressed to C[o]l B[eaumon]t Bretton

      I am honored with your Letter of the 2nd inst and in consequence have seen Mr P Fenwick who considers it expedient to retain two professional Gentlemen at North Shields, two at So[uth] Shields, two a Newcastle, one at Morpeth, one at Alnwick One at Hexham & one at Berwick, which he will accordingly do.

      Enclosed you will receive extracts of Letters from Mr Blackett to you and Col Beaumont relating to the intended investment of Stock, out of the money laying in Surtees’s Burdon & Co’s Bank in February 1803. – The Alderman is now at Sir Wm Blacketts, nor is it important to the establish[en]t of your claim against the private Estate of Mr Burdon that he should possess any Letters from you on the subject, for nothing less than Mr Burdons written engagement, making himself responsible for the investment of Stock to the amount, thus delayed, can avail you in the least. – Proofs of debt can be made against Mr Burdon’s Estate for a month to come & at farthest to the 16 Decem[be]r when a dividend will be declared. – If you possess in London any pledge from Mr Burdon of a nature to establish a claim, my personal exertions to procure it are at your disposal. –

      In two other Covers you will be pleased to receive Cash Account & Lead Sales for last month & I am etc	MM
