Mrs Beaumont Bretton


In this & two other Covers I beg to transmit the Agents Reports of the State of the Mines & of the Bargains for the present Quar[ter] ending the 31st March 1814. – The Mines are poor & wrought, with few exceptions, at the highest price of 42s/-  p[er]Bing; - but as the attention & exertions of the Agents are directed to new Trials & to putting the old Workings into a state of Repair where the Ore can be raised at the present prices I do not apprehend any material deficiency in the general annual produce.
