I breakfasted with Beaumont...and afterwards went to Hexham where there was a great public meeting held in the open air.   I was in the chair as the Steward of the Regality of Hexham.   We met first at the old Hall and then adjourned to the Abbey green.   Beaumont spoke very well and when I returned thanks...I addressed the crowd at considerable length with the view of persuading the freeholders to go to Alnwick at their own expence and I believe I was very successful, certainly what I said was very well received and measures were immediately adopted to prepare carts ec. for the purpose of cheap conveyance.
