I went with Beaumont to Hexham where a public dinner was given to him by a large body of electors. Mr. Blackett was in the chair and the day went off very well. Blackett made an excellent chairman and spoke very well and like a gentleman. Beaumont made the most regular and statesmanlike speech I ever heard him deliver. I had not prepared myself so much as I ought to have done but being a good deal excited by the general enthusiasm which prevailed, I spoke with considerable force and effect.
