At Beaumont's earnest request yesterday, I attended the christening of his little boy (Wentworth Blackett Beaumont) at his house near Hampstead. The party consisted of Mrs. and 2 Misses Beaumont, Capt. and Edwd. Beaumont, Mr., Mrs. and 2 Misses Atkinson, Messrs Broderick and Summers - 2 young Atkinsons joined us at the splendid entertainment which we had after the service was performed. Things went off very well considering the heterogeneous nature of the two Houses of Beaumont and Atkinson. My presence, I believe, gave satisfaction to both families and tended to prevent any disagreeable collision between the parties.
