Dear Sir     I wrote to you the 15th inst. with the Return of Coll. Beaumont’s Income; I have since received an Account from him of the residence of the several Annuitants etc which I Inclose you to be inserted in the return sent you; Coll. Beaumont has not taken any Notice of the Amount of his Pay as Colonel of the 21st Regt. of L[igh]t Dragoons tho’ I mentioned in two Letters the Necessity of it & that it was probable he could be required to do it by the Income Commissioners.

I propose going by Hexham (instead of Dilston) to Dukesfield on Tuesday & I hope that road may be safe for a Change.

I expect that the Lead Stewards will be at this Place on Saturday the 27th inst.   I am etc  J E B
