Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Thomas Wentworth Beaumont – 15 May 1824

Mr Beaumont May 15th 1824 I have sent by this days coach a box containing plans and prospectus sent to me by Mr Chapman ... The alteration at the Hall is proceeding with all possible despatch ... it appears the railway if carried into execution would take the same line as the intended canal was to have passed and you will observe that it would pass through the centre of the Bearl and Short Wood and proceed past Peepy intersecting the whole of your estate in the north side of the River. It is

Letter – Charles Winn to Raine – 19 May 1824

Nostell 19th May 1824 Mr. Raine, I duly received your letter of the 16th of last Month and am sorry I have so long delayed replying to it. With respect to the Swans, I must own that I do not feel by any means satisfied that the six which came here some weeks since are those which are <missing> from the Bretton Water. The fact is there have been two flights, consisting of six each, seen at this place at the same time and this circumstance I mentioned to Colnl.

Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Thomas Wentworth Beaumont – 31 May 1824

Mr Beaumont May 31st 1824 ..I understand Mr E Swinburne has called upon several gentlemen in the neighbourhood to contradict the substance of your speech at Hexham. Col Carr told me ten days ago he had received a letter from Sir J Swinburn the contents of which he would communicate to you and Mr E.S. was to meet Col Coulson by appointment at Col Carr last Tuesday to contradict your statement. I shall see the Col tomorrow and in case he has not made you acquainted with the particulars of thi

Diary – James Losh – 17 Jun 1824

It appears that Beaumont’s errand when he last came into Northd. was to challenge E. Swinburne for contradicting the assertions in his speech at Hexham. All this shews the great error on the part of the Swinburnes in not shortly denying the truth of those assertions in the same paper in which they appeared.

Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Thomas Wentworth Beaumont – 2 Jul 1824

Mr Beaumont (undated) ..Every person who has been made acquainted with the correspondence is fully convinced that Sir J Swinburn has been guilty of a gross mistatement and are at a loss to know how he means next to proceed. Every step he has taken from first to last has tended to defeat his own object and his friends now admit that he has mislead them and are all <....> to see how he will set about to extricate himself. Mr Bird seems not to wish the correspondence to gain great public

Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Thomas Wentworth Beaumont – 9 Jul 1824

Mr Beaumont July 9th 1824 Mr Edward Swinburn has been very unwell for some weeks but he has now got out again.

I shall next get on with the inside work of the new kitchen and lower the present stacks of chimneys.

Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Thomas Wentworth Beaumont – 21 Jul 1824

Mr Beaumont July 21st 1824 I was not able to state in my last letter the day on which the judge will enter Newcastle. I rode over there yesterday and learnt that it will be on Thursday the 19th of August. I hope nothing will prevent you being in Northumberland at that time as considerable disappointment has been felt by your friends that you were not at the Races.

Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Thomas Wentworth Beaumont – 24 Jul 1824

Mr Beaumont July 24th 1824 ..you are determined at any rate to take the dam down. (As to the absolute necessity of this; I am aware your opinion is at variance with my own as I have every reason to believe should a bridge be erected and the stone taken from the south side of the fish lock to build it with it would give the River so much more scope that no flood <....> be apprehended and would save greatest and <.... ornament> to the place. Thos Strutt says there are a few grouse

Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Thomas Wentworth Beaumont – 19 Oct 1824

Mr Beaumont Oct 19th 1824 The wine may be <....> immediately if you think proper but I think it would be better to delay it until Spring as I shall be obliged to leave the house this winter to enable the workmen to get on with the alterations inside. There is at present a house at Corbridge to let and I shall thank you to inform me ... if you would wish me to engage it and remove my family from Newbiggin to it as the seaside is dreadfully cold at this season.

Letter – James Losh to Henry Brougham – 27 Oct 1824

Alnwick Oct 27, 1824 My dear Brougham, Your letter reached me at the moment when I was setting out for this place. I however sent immediately about your parcel and I now learn from my clerk that it was forwarded last Friday and so I trust that it reached you safe and sound. I can only repeat that I am much obliged to Lord Rosslyn for his kind attention, which, I have no doubt, contributed mainly to Baldwin's success. Pray be so good as to tell him so or

Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Thomas Wentworth Beaumont – 2 Nov 1824

Mr B. Nov 2 1824 In answer to your letter ... there is not any cottage on the south side of the river in which the gamekeeper you purpose sending could be placed ... If Thos Strutt was to remove back to Broomley two rooms may be found in the village until a house is built. Is it your intention to let Thos Strutt continue to take charge of the dogs and retain the deputation or to place them under the care of the new gamekeeper. I fear Thos Strutts disposition will often cause dissention betw

Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Thomas Wentworth Beaumont – 17 Nov 1824

Mr Beaumont Nov 17th 1824 I am sorry I am not likely to see you here before next Easter as it appears (if current reports are to be believed) that there is a strong party forming to oppose you at the next election but I cannot find that any individual has positively come forward to offer himself. I think it necessary to make one observation, that in several instances lately I have heard it stated by some who I am convinced are your friends that they think you must be indifferent about it or

Mrs B. Dec 1824 I have to thank you for your very polite attention and handsome present of the P. Forte at Hexham Abbey. I did myself the honor to call upon you last week but you were from home; otherwise I should have had the opportunity of more particularly inpressing the obligation you placed me under.
