“Our only visitor last night was Sefton, who arrived about 12, bringing with him the correspondence between the Duke of Wellington and Lord Anglesey, which the latter had lent to Sefton to be returned the next morning at 11. He read it to Mrs. Taylor and me, and it was ½ past one before he had done. The Beau, according to custom, writes atrociously, and his charges against Lord Anglesey are of the rummest kind, such as being too much addicted to popular courses, going to Lord Cloncurry’s, being too civil to Catholic leaders, not turning Mr. O’Gorman Mahon out of the commission of the peace, &c., &c. There are letters full of such stuff, and Lord
Anglesey in his answers beats him easy in all ways. . . . The Whigs are quite as sore as the Brunswickers at this victory of the Beau over
Prinney and his Catholic prejudices. They had arranged the most brilliant opposition for the approaching session, and this coup of the Duke’s has blown up the whole concern.

“At Brooks’s last night the deceased poet Rogers came up to beg I would meet Brougham at dinner at his house on Wednesday.”
