Robert Tippler Esqre Secretary to the Lead Co, London 		Newcastle 21 March 1809

      As agent to Colonel Beaumont I beg to inform you that on the 17th of last month I transmitted to Mr Thomas Dodd of Nenthead, the Governor & Company’s Agent, an Account by which it appears that the Company’s proportion of the Composition paid to the Bishop of Durham and Rector of Stanhope for, and on  to 30 September 1808 account of Lead ore raised in Weardale amounts to the sum of  £5115-11-4.  Mr Dodd in acknowledging the receipt of the above, stated his intention of forwarding it to the Governor and Company’s Court of Directors in London, but not having received from him any further communication relating thereto, and Coll  Beaumont having in September last finally settled with the Bishop I am  to solicit payment of the said sum of £5115 – 11 – 4 conformable to  the Account delivered.   – Requesting the favor of an early reply
