Excerpt from The Wesleyan Demonsthenes: Comprising Select Sermons of Rev. Joseph Beaumont; With a Sketch of His Character
His next appointment was Edinburgh, where he lived three years. He there enrolled himself a member of the University, as he had done in Glasgow; and though he attended the lectures of Dr. Chalmers and others, his studies were not now, as formerly, directed to belles-lettres or moral sci ence, but to the acquisition of the physical sciences. It was a favorite maxim with Dr. Beaumont that all knowledge is worth acquiring. His ministry at Edinburgh was one of great success. He was so unboundedly popular that the people made an effort to have him remain the fourth year, which was in consistent with the Wesleyan order. From Edin burgh he was sent to Buxton Circuit, in England.
