      You must remember what I mentioned to you respecting the Lead Mine Accounts being sent for the future regularly every Month to the Office let me desire that you will pay proper attention to it & not put me under a necessity of acquainting Mr Beaumont with this neglect; not one Account of the Lead Smelted & Delivered from Allen Mill has been sent to the Office since that Mill has been in Mr Bs possession & I have great reason to believe that the Loss of Lead from that Mill has been considerable

	If Mr Smith persists in not complying with these Regulations it will be necessary to appoint a person in his place of wch I shall acquaint him                    I am etc   J.E.B
