Doubts about Newman's Beatification

It may have been that while it was acceptable to be so attired on the boat, it would not be so on the shore where a situation of mixed genders could be.  It may have been a reflex action by someone in his profession for so long.  It may have been that he was entering into the presence of the Lord and wished to be more properly attired.  Unfortunately it is all supposition.
