Sir	Since I received your Letter respecting your Lead Mine at Bollihope, I have had some conversation with Coll Beaumont’s Mine Agent on your proposals, and am sorry to say I cannot agree with you for either _ In the first instance Coll Beaumont does not intend to have any concern in Partnership either in renting Engines or otherwise, and as I cannot possibly give the Sum you mention for the Mine I apprehend it will be unnecessary to say anything more on the subject.                                              I am etc   J.E.B
