Diary – James Losh – 6 Feb 1832

With his usual impetuosity, Beaumont seems to have taken a step which must cause an immediate rupture with Mr. Crawhall. He gives me the same account as James did of their interview and speaks candidly and fairly enough of that subject. His wish to see me in London arises from his not knowing how to act with respect to Crawhall.

Diary – James Losh – 22 Feb 1832

I had today a long letter from Beaumont written in a more business-like style than usual. I fear, however, that he is pursuing a very doubtful course in his affairs, and that James will not have a very pleasant (perhaps not a permanent) office as his Auditor.

Diary – James Losh – 16 Mar 1832

I saw Lord Howick on the Railroad business and had also a good deal of conversation with him on the subject of Emigration. He appears to me to be a clear headed man of business, and tho' I know his manners are said to be cold and repulsive, I never found him otherwise than frank and even attentive and civil. I had a good deal of talk with W.Ord relative to the Northumberland elections ec. I dined and drank some coffee with Beaumont and Mrs. B. and Miss Atkinson, her sister.

Letter – James Losh to Henry Grey – 12 May 1832

Dear Sir, I am much obliged by the attention you have paid to the case of poor Scott who appears to me to be deserving of it not only in respect of his afflicted state In Health & Circumstances but also from his general character & as a favoured <attendant> of the late Chief Baron Sir A.
