Durham Feb'y 29, 1824 Mr. Beaumont has now authorised me to say that he has given up all intention of proceeding against you. And I trust I may add that he will in future abstain from all measures which can disturb Sir John Swinburne or his family. From the first, I stated to Mr. Beaumont without reserve that the only excuse which could be devised for his conduct was that very delusion which he wished so much to disprove. And I confess I have been more surprised than pleased by his continuing to write to me as a friend and sending me a general Retainer. I need say nothing as to his plans with respect to the County, because you, no doubt, will have heard them from other quarters before this can reach you. Brougham in a letter I had from him today speaks very highly of Williams's speech and Williams, himself, who is with us on the circuit, seems much satisfied with his success.
