I had a long and somewhat curious interview with Mr. Liddell who called upon me professedly to talk about the Catholic question, but perhaps with the further view of making out my opinion upon other points also, but not forgetting my being the counsel and friend of Mr. Beaumont.   He declared strongly his wish for Catholic Emancipation and professed that he was friendly to civil and religious liberty in general.   He admitted, however, to me that he considered Mr. Canning as his leader and guide.   He told me that the King is hostile but moderately so to the Catholic question, that the Duke of York is violently so is but too well known, but Mr. Liddell assured me (which I did not before know) that the Duke of Clarence is very friendly to the Catholics.
