I left Bradley (Mr. Beaumont’s) after breakfast. (It) is a handsome gentlemanly seat, pleasantly situated.   Mr. Beaumont appears to be an amiable man, of liberal opinions, and considerable information.   But he certainly does not appear to me to be a man of powerful mind, and his knowledge of metaphysics and Political Econony (of both of which he talks a good deal) is not very profound.   He has been much in foreign countries and has been by no means an inattentive observer of their manners, customs ec.   But in my opinion, he never can make any considerable figure either as an orator or a man of business.
