Mr Geo Crawhall Weardale

Col. Beaumont having taken into consideration the late illegal and disgraceful conduct of the Workmen in Weardale, to whom under the late disastrous circumstances of the times, he has authorized work to be given to every extent possible, far beyond what the states of the Mines precedently warranted, feel justly offended; and altho[ugh] he is inclined to believe the greatest part of the Men have been influenced in their late behavior, by some evil disposed persons among them, he is willing to pass over the offence in the hope that similar disgraceful scenes will never occur again, yet it is with the exception of those persons who have been the chief instigators in the late transactions who are not to be employed again in his Works whenever you can discover or identify their Persons		

      I am etc MM
