Messrs Tilson & Preston		Newcastle 6 June 1812


The foregoing is Copy of a Letter addressed by Messrs Glyn & Co to Col Beaumont, and I am to request you will favour me with an explanation of the nature of the deduction of £1400 which you have made from the Sum of £12,256-13-1 proved against the Estate of Mr Ellill by Col Beaumont, as I am not aware that the Sum of £1000 has been paid to himself & £400 for his use to Messrs Veres. – Your letter to Messrs Loraine & Co of the 2d Inst. is before me and appears to have originated in misconception – Mess. Veres & Co their Bankers, held two acceptances of Mr Ellill at the time of the Bankruptcy, the one for £311-19-8 and the other for £102-2-8, which they proved at Guildhall on the 19th Sept 1809, as they were entitled to do, being distinct claims, from the above Sum of £12.256-13-1 Mess. Veres & Co are desired to present those Bills for your satisfaction and with the hope that you will not continue to refuse payment of the Dividend due upon them 	I am etc		MM

PS Intending to be in London next month I trust you will have the papers prepared for signature of the Lead Co & Col Beaumont relating to the arrangement agreed upon, of the Mines in Weardale.
