Sir	I have been favoured with your letters of the 26th Ult & the 20th Inst to which you should have had a more early answer, I fully intended waiting on you when I was in Town, but the illness of my Daughter, & the death of my Nephew prevented me, I have since been from home for some days; I communicated the contents of your Letter to Mr Beaumont who declines the several offers that you make him for your Lead Mine at Bollihope, as well as for the Estate; I am sorry that you have been a sufferer by the former & I sincerely wish you a good Purchaser.                                     I am etc    J.E.B
