Colonel Beaumont                                                                  Newcastle    2d Novr 1797

M.P.        Portman square London

Dr Sir	I am favoured with your Lre of the 29th inst inclosing your Lre to Mr Bell which I forwarded by post.  Mr Tweddale called on me & I had some conversation with him respecting the buildings etc at the Abbey; its probable that he may stay there till Monday next to meet Mr Stephenson who goes thee on the part of Mr Newton, & when he has executed the power of Attorney? notice will be given to Mr Ebdon to meet Mr Stephenson on that business;  I find that Newton strongly recommends a stone Stair case (instead of that intended) & recommends the design of that at Capheaton, I mentioned this to Mr Tweddale who will consult with Johnson about it; & make his report to Mrs Beaumont & yourself.  I wish you would inform yourself of Mr Pitt or Mr Rose as to the proposed tax on Lead & favor me with a few lines directed to the Dragon Harrogate for which place I go tomorrow.

                                                                                                               I am etc  J.E.B
