Sir	I was favoured with your letter of the 12th Inst & observe the Contents.  Mr Beaumont is obliged to you for the first offer that you make him of Harneyshaw Mine, with the Engine & Works; from the enquiry that I have made I understand that they will be no further an object to Mr Beaumont than by enabling him to work with more effect the other part of that Vein; he has no inclination for the purchase of the Estate, & is advised not to exceed the Sum of £300 for the Mine in the Freehold & Leasehold with the Engine, Smith’s shop etc for liberty of keeping Water races that are now made in repair etc.  Please to favour me with your Answer.                            I am with respect etc      J.E.B

G S Van Heythuyson Esqr
