Thos Rd Beaumont Esqr                                                                Newcastle 13th June 1796

M.P.   Portman square  London

Dear Sir	

      I hope that you found Mrs Beaumont & your little Folks much better, & that you have recovered the fatigue etc of the Election; Poor Harry Tulip has been dangerously ill & I wish that he may be out of hazard, the fatigue of his journey to Alnwick brought on a suppression of Urine he suffered very much Mr Ingham drew off near a Gallon of Water & he left Tulip much relieved on Saturday Morning.

	Butters Wife called on me this Morning to inquire if you had left her Husbands discharge with me & she requests the favour of you to send his Discharge under Cover to Mr Heron.  I Yesterday evening made a Sale of 10,000 P[iece]s Lead to Mr C Blackett for Freeman & Preston half Refined @ £18-10 per For payable in Bills due in Nine Months , this is a great Reduction of Price, as well as length of Credit, but I was under a necessity of coming into their Terms, for on those only would they purchase, they had bought some quantities on the same terms & had (I knew)an offer of some lower; a pretty large quantity of Lead at Chester has lately been sold at the reduced price of £2 per For.  I expect to sell the other Houses 15000 P[iece]s on the same terms.  I had a Consultation with Mr Williamson & Mr Heron this Morning respecting the Suit with Lancaster & Halls Execur & I sincerely hope the issue of it may be successfull to you; as there is not the least doubt of the equity of your Claim.

	I set forward for Town early Tomorrow morning & shall be at my Daughter Steads lodgings No 11 Albermarle Street untill the suit comes on when I shall remove to the Queen’s head Coffee House & Hotel, Holburn.                  I am etc   J.E.B
