To T. W. Beaumont, Esq. Government House, Devonport, Jan 19, 1824 Sir, In answer to your letter, which I have just received, I have only to acknowledge having stated, and particularly to your brother, that I considered your having been under a mental delusion as the only excuse that could be made for your conduct. I am, Sir, your obedient servant. Grey P.S. I must decline all further correspondence, except such as may pass through Sir W. Gordon, whom I have requested to deliver this letter.
The letter as given here was appended to Robert Dillon Browne’s letter of 15th December 1838 to the Morning Advertiser, submitted in evidence of TWB’s character in the wake of TWB’s case against John Somers in Paris. It is likely to have been taken from those published in the Newcastle Courant on 20th July 1826.
