             John Street   London

Sir	I was favoured with your Lre of the 26th Inst & observe what you say as to making your Mine & Mr Beaumonts a joint property _ but on consulting his Mine Agent I find that he is of opinion that it would not be to Mr Beaumonts advantage to do so; nor to Lease any part of his Veins, but as the Engine may enable him to work a part of the Vein adjoining your Freehold, I shall give £100 more than I offered you on the 29th April for the Mine in the Freehold & Leasehold with the other Conditions I mentioned in my letter of that date

                                                                    I am Sir etc    J.E.B
