Annual visit to the mines thus terminated satisfactorily. The death of poor Col. Beaumont makes no difference in the business arrangements of the family and I have nothing to say new of Mrs B., except that I think age and infirmities have rather improved and softened her character. I was glad that there was no necessity to dismiss any of her numerous workpeople (above 3000) tho' no doubt the reduction of wages must diminish their comforts very considerably.
