Sir        I am favoured with your letter of the 6th Inst. enclosing a Statement of Col. Beaumonts Income arising from his Property in Yorkshire; I am forming a statement of his whole Income so far as it comes within my knowledge; a Duplicate of which shall be sent to Mr Tweedale before the 17th Inst. which he may produce to the Commiss[ione]rs in Case he should be required so to do.  The Salary paid to the Steward I am of opinion is a Deduction that will be allowed in Case such Steward receives the rents.  The Rent & Taxes of the House in Portman square in which Col. Beaumont resides I am perfectly unacquainted with.  I am etc  J E B
