I dined at the Mansion House with a large party, assembled in honour of and for the purpose of meeting Mr. Beaumont. I had not seen Beaumont since the election, but we seemed to be (and I have no doubt were) upon our usual intimate terms. He conducted himself adroitly and by his chearfulness and good humour pleased his friends and in some degree disarmed his enemies. My son William accompanied me and he was much amused having never before been at a large public dinner.
