Beaumont and I had a long walk before breakfast and another afterwards, his wife accompanying us. He shewed me also every part of his house and we talked over all his meditated improvements. Upon the whole I was pleased with my visit and really hope that this marriage may be very beneficial in its consequences. The lady is young, pleasing in her appearance and unaffected in her manners. But she does not appear to me either handsome or clever. With the exception of a little vehemence against the Quakers and the Irish Association, there was nothing eccentric in Beaumont's sentiments and his manners are always good. Beaumont is certainly a man of good talents. He has a good memory, has read much but without any regular system and his imagination often runs away with him. He would be very pleasant in conversation, were he not too fond of metaphysical subtleties and did not a little disguised Aristocracy now and then shew itself.
