Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Diana Beaumont – 1 May 1826

Mrs B. May 1st 1826 Mr Beaumont left Newcastle on Saturday last for London after completing the most successful canvass ever accomplished in this or any other county. His opponents generally but more particularly the inconsistent Whigs are completely defeated and can never rally now. Throughout Mr B's canvass he has met with the most flattering reception and his exertions have been beyond what I believe any other gentleman could properly have given thought. The result however has ampl

Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Thomas Wentworth Beaumont – 2 May 1826

Mr B. May 2nd 1826 I understand Captain Jobling of Newton Hall has taken offence that you did not call upon him and says he should certainly have attended the dinner had you called upon him … Michael Dodds Esq residing at Cornhills Nr Kirkwhelpington was from home when you passed and I believe you omitted to call at his house to leave your card. A letter I have no doubt will win him over and I shall request your Brother, as soon as he returns from his canvass at Carlisle to call upon him.

Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Thomas Wentworth Beaumont – 10 May 1826

Mr B. May 10th 1826 Mr Ed Beaumont will have made you acquainted with an unpleasant circumstance which your servant Mason says have occurred at Bradley. As soon as I heard of it I went down to enquire into the affair and I must confess myself that after a long and close investigation I have considerable doubt of the veracity of his statement. The matter is of so improper a nature in any family that the parties accused cannot remain as fellow servants with the accuser and they have both give

Mr. Beaumont is the gentleman whose quarrel with Mr. Somers is the subject of general conversation:- ’It may be safely affirmed that few public proceedings are more frequently the causes of duels than elections. The present position of one of the parties will render the following duel of more than common interest. In 1826, Lord Howick offered himself as a cand
