Mr Joseph Dickinson				Newcastle June 14th 1813

Dear Sir

I have received your letter of the 11th Inst and the intelligence you have received Of Mr Joseph Little’s discharge is true, but I am surprized from his connexion with you, that you have not heard it from himself. Col & Mrs Beaumont have long been of opinion that in point of knowledge & Industry, Mr Little unequal to the important charge of Coalcleugh Mines, and a due regard to their own Interest, determined them to appoint Mr George Crawhall to the situation, in whose abilities and application, they place greater Confidence. Col & Mrs Beaumont also consider, - that from your infirmities, and the distance of your residence, preventing you at all periods giving constant attendance at, and inspecting minutely all the Mines, have determined to discontinue your appointment, and to rely upon their resident Agents only, to perform the duty’s of their situations

	I am yours etc MM
