In a letter received by <Bell> this Monday from Eliza, she says  ‘ all the family entered into a conspiracy against poor Mrs Beaumont and refused to go out with her unless she agreed on paper approving of all Mr Beaumont had done & was going to do.  Lord Dudley (who told me of it) was called in as <umpire> between the parties.   He encouraged Mrs B to <resist> & the young Ladies & the other <son> were obliged to make a kind of compromise with her.’   What the compromise was she does not say, but the whole family seems to be as mad as Beaumont himself.
