Mrs Beaumont addressed to Col Beaumont – Bretton   	Newcastle 5 September 1809

      I am honoured with your Letters of the 1st and 2nd Instant and in this and another Cover you will receive Cash Account and Lead Sales for last month.  Mr Elliott has called a meeting of his Creditors on the 18th inst when he will be prepared to lay before them the state of his affairs, and to adopt such measures as may then be thought expedient; He assures W Nichol his agent here, that provided Easterby Hall & Co pay their Bills he shall be able to satisfy his Creditors without difficulty – both the one and the other are however, in my mind very doubtful.  

      I am etc  MM
