Sol[icito]r Ely Place London			N[ew]castle 10th August 1811

	I am favoured with your letter of the 6th Inst and assure you that I am prepared and anxious to fulfil engagements on the part of Col Beaumont whenever the Trustees fulfil what they are bound to do. Bundy’s Patent and the Apparatus now constructing are different in principle as well as in operation and therefore are totally distinct. – What the Trustees cannot give a legal Title to, cannot surely prevent those who possess the Right of using it whenever they can bring it to bear and find it their Interest to pursue the Manufacture of Bullets. – It is against the possibility of interference which I would guard, and the responsible situation which I am placed in, that my desire arises, to have every tittle of the Agreement fulfilled.

	I am etc MM
