I had a letter of thanks from Sir J. Swinburne and messages full of gratitude and offers of service from Mrs. Beaumont; from Beaumont himself, a letter full of exaggerated praise and professions of friendship and regard.   With all this I confess I am very well pleased and the more so because I am conscious of having acted with good intentions.  But I certainly do not expect much fruit from my exertions in the shape of benefit to myself or my family.
