Mrs Beaumont Addressed to Colonel Beaumont		Newcastle 18th July 1809

Thorpe near Malton 

      In this and another cover you will receive Cash Account and Lead Sales for last month, and yesterday I remitted Messrs Glyn & Co five Bills amounting to £25,333-7-2 for Colonel Beaumont’s account, the particulars of which are here annexed – on my visit to the Mines I was much gratified at the continued flourishing state of those in Northumberland, which will produce as much Ore this, as in the former year.  The Weardale are poorer, and not expected to be so productive but I trust the <defalcation> is only temporary and that the falling off in Breckonsike will be compensated by success in other places.

      No sales of Lead have been made at this Office  since last I had the honor of writing, but I am sorry to  state that Mr <Ewart> has sold 2000 Pieces to Messrs Watkins & Co  at £32 per fo.r and more has been offered them on the same terms and rejected.  Presenting Compts   to Colonel Beaumont 

      I am etc MM

The Dukesfield Smelters and Carriers Project aimed to celebrate and discover the heritage of the Dukesfield Arches & lead carriers' routes between Blaydon and the lead mines of Allendale and Weardale. A two year community project, it was led by the Friends of the North Pennines in partnership with Hexhamshire and Slaley Parish Councils and the active support of Allendale Estates. It was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the generous support of other sponsors. Friends of the North Pennines: Charity No:1137467
