Mrs Beaumont Bretton					Newcastle 4 Novr 1820

Annexed is copy of a Letter from Mr Phillpotts del[ivere]d to me this day by Mr Fenwick; and notwithstanding the reliance which Mr Phillpotts professes to <repose> in Mr Fenwick, I did not find that the latter was invested with the least power to conclude, upon any terms, an Agreement. I however entertain hopes We shall at last bring this evasive and unreasonable Gentleman to terms. I found Mr Fenwick the very opposite of his Employer fair and candid, for on exhibiting to him statements of our situation in the Weardale Mines he concurred in their correctness and before he left the Office acknowledged the offer made for the Tythe Ore liberal. He is to see Mr Phillpotts on Monday and I hope good will result from the interview. It is pretty evident that Mr Phillpotts furnished Mr Fenwick, only with such Data for calculations as suited his own purpose. – I am etc  MM
