Business with Beaumont at Bywell where I dined and staid all night.   Nothing could be more kind and confidential than Beaumont's communications with me.  He disclosed to me all his plans in strict confidence, viz. his determination to dismiss the Crawhalls and all his present agents except Johnson.   His intention to place my son James in the situation of Auditor etc., and his resolution not to sell Bywell etc.   He also consulted me as to his conduct as to the County representation, and desired me to sound W. Ord as to being his colleague for the southern division, when the Bill is passed.   All this looks well and promising, but unfortunately I have no confidence in Beaumont's steadiness.
