Mr Beaumont		(undated)

..Every person who has been made acquainted with the correspondence is fully convinced that Sir J Swinburn has been guilty of a gross mistatement and are at a loss to know how he means next to proceed.  Every step he has taken from first to last has tended to defeat his own object and his friends now admit that he has mislead them and are all <....> to see how he will set about to extricate himself.  Mr Bird seems not to wish the correspondence to gain great publicity (at least so his letter to Col Carr implies) but in my own opinion it ought to be made known to all who are in possession of Sir J.S. statements. We have taken down the cupola.
No date given but it appears in sequence between 31st May and 9th July1824, and perhaps shortly before the latter date given the mention of the cupola in both so 2nd July is used here
