I saw Lord Howick on the Railroad business and had also a good deal of conversation with him on the subject of Emigration.   He appears to me to be a clear headed man of business, and tho' I know his manners are said to be cold and repulsive, I never found him otherwise than frank and even attentive and civil.   I had a good deal of talk with W.Ord relative to the Northumberland elections ec.   I dined and drank some coffee with Beaumont and Mrs. B. and Miss Atkinson, her sister.
