This was an important meeting of the Railroad Directors. I presided as Chairman and succeeded in carrying the measure which appeared to me essential to our success, viz. that we should proceed with the Parliamentary Line at the Newcastle end, as they have done at the Eastern (sic) end not very far from Carlisle. John Clayton opposed my views, but I had a large majority. Beaumont attended and took a prudent and proper part in the debate.
