Diary – James Losh – 14 Aug 1831

I had a short but very friendly letter from Beaumont requesting me to meet him at Breton as soon as his health will permit him to travel.

Diary – James Losh – 27 Aug 1831

I had a letter from Beaumont today of the most confidential kind, but still I fear that when he finds his income much less than he expected, he may think he can do without an Auditor. Were I merely his Auditor, perhaps he would be right, but with his habits, a person of some experience and of integrity is quite essential to any tolerable management of his affairs.

Diary – James Losh – 31 Aug 1831

I had a letter from Beaumont expressing great anxiety about his affairs and wishing me to meet him in London.

Diary – James Losh – 1 Sep 1831

Mr. Donkin and I have nearly the same views of Mr. Beaumont's situation and I think if he can be persuaded to act reasonably, his affairs may be satisfactorily arranged without much difficulty.

Diary – James Losh – 29 Dec 1831

Business with Beaumont at Bywell where I dined and staid all night. Nothing could be more kind and confidential than Beaumont's communications with me. He disclosed to me all his plans in strict confidence, viz. his determination to dismiss the Crawhalls and all his present agents except Johnson. His intention to place my son James in the situation of Auditor etc., and his resolution not to sell Bywell etc. He also consulted me as to his conduct as to the County representation, and d

Diary – James Losh – 3 Feb 1832

Re son James becoming Beaumont's Auditor. I shall be quite content with my 100 guineas a year for holding the courts and going to London once a year if required.

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.

Diary – James Losh – 24 Mar 1832

Most part of the morning I passed with Beaumont and Mr. Hodgson (his new agent).

Diary – James Losh – 10 Apr 1832

I saw Mr. Mulcaster and arranged the terms upon which he is to give up his present situation as Mr. Beaumont's Agent.

Letter – James Losh to Henry Grey – 12 May 1832

May 12, 1832 When I wrote to you very hastily yesterday, I did not recollect that there was last night no post from this place to London. I have now seen Headlam, Mr. J. Fenwick and many of your other friends in Newcastle and have the greatest reason to believe that Lord Grey is, if possible, more popular than he was before his resignation. I have also seen a good many of the solicitors ec and I think I can venture to say that should there be a Dissolution, you and Mr. Beaumont wi

14 July, 16 Wilton Street My dear Lord Grey Evidence of interest from your part in favour of Poland is truly of the greatest price in my eyes so that I cannot prevent myself from renewing the request to urge your presence at Stafford House tomorrow morning.
