Mrs Beaumont					N[ew]Castle 6 June 1812


I am honoured with your letter of the 2d inst. and have wrote to Messrs Tilson & Preston Solicitors to Mr Ellills Bankruptcy requesting of them an explanation of the Lett off which they make ag[ains]t Col Beaumont’s claim on Mr J Ellills estate. – I apprehend Mr Tilson has heard something of Messrs Nichol & Ludlows responsibility on the Bills they drew upon Mr Ellill for the Lead purchased on his Account and have made this attempt to come to the knowledge of the amount, but which cannot avail them in establishing a deduction to Col Beaumont’s claim against the Bankrupts Estate, because the arrangement with Messrs Nichol & Ludlow as drawers of the Bills was a subsequent transaction. – I consider the conduct of the Solicitors on this occasion extremely irregular and originating in sinister motives.

      I am etc	MM
