I went with Beaumont to Morpeth to attend the County Meeting called by the High Sheriff upon the requisition of near 300 most respectable gentlemen and freeholders...As Beaumont and I travelled by ourselves I had a great deal of conversation with him; he does not want sense and has both read and thought a good deal on politics.   His opinions are liberal and moderate and he is in theory far from being an aristocrat, but he has been spoiled so much by early indulgence and by a long course of dissipation and selfishness that I fear that he will always in practice be a slave to his passions.
