J E Blackett Esq  Newcastle						Newcastle 14 June 1808

In consequence of the large sum of money to be paid to the Bishop of Durham for terminating the suit in Chancery respecting the Lot Ore, Colonel & Mrs Beaumont find it necessary to request the Settlement of all accounts wherein they have claims for money and I am directed by them to apply to you for that purpose; at the same time it is their wish in settling the Balances of your Cash Account that such mode may be adopted as is most agreeable to yourself. If you prefer giving Security they desire that you will accept the Interest during Life, or, should you choose to pay the amount immediately, they, in this case beg your acceptance of £200 per annum during the same period. I am most Respectfully etc   MM
