Messrs Veres Lucadou &  Co 	Newcastle the 15 September 1809

	As Agent to Colonel Beaumont I take the liberty to add my request to the annexed Letter that you will make the desired proof against the Estate of John Elliott on Tuesday first at Guildhall when also Assignees will be chosen.  The object and urgency of this request will have its due weight in your minds when you know that considerable apprehension was entertained of a design being formed to appoint Assignees not friends to the real & bona fide Creditors. – If M Maltby Lead Merchant who is a Creditor would be an Assignee I must beg your influence towards putting him in that situation and which if he declines that you will cooperate with him in choosing some other proper Person

      Permit me also to request that you will prove another Bill upon Mr Elliott (if accepted) in your possession of £102 – 2- 8 dated the 21st instant paid by me to Messrs J & R Chapman & you will be pleased return it to them in regular course debiting Sir Wm Loraine & Co with the amount to whom I will account.  

      I am etc   MM
