Went to Blagdon...to a ball and supper. The party consisted of above 200 persons. Most of the Gentlemen’s families in the two Counties and a good many of the Corporation (Aldermen ec.). The Barringtons, Ravensworth family, Lambton, Monk, the Swinburns, Brandlings, Beaumont ec. ec. And everything was conducted not only very handsomely but also very comfortably. I had a favorable opportunity of introducing my sons to a good many of my aristocratic friends, and had the satisfaction also to see them look well and conduct themselves with the ease and propriety of well educated young men.
