      I have written by this post to Colonel Beaumont; and transmit herewith a Copy of the letter, as you should not be left ignorant on what foot I have put my application to him for his consent. You may depend on the earliest communication of his answer.

      From your statement it is perfectly clear that the boring for Coal at Bedlington should be proceeded upon whenever Buddle shall think it proper. You will acquaint me when matters are ripe for the purchase to be in my name.

      I purpose being in London on the 31 <Inst.>

      <I> am, Etc


Arthur Mowbray Esqre.
