To T. W. Beaumont, Esq.

Tunbridge Wells, August 31, 1823


	I this moment received your most extraordinary letter, which has excited not only my surprise, but my indignation.

	How you could justify to yourself the unwarrantable use you have made of my name I will not inquire. I feel it only necessary to say, that as far as relates to myself, the infamous allegation you have made against Lady Swinburne’s character is totally false and unfounded.

	I am, Sir, your obedient humble servant.

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.
