Dielectric beta relaxation in a pyridine-toluene solution is studied close to the glass transition. Loss peak frequency and maximum loss both exhibit thermal hysteresis. An annealing-state-independent parameter involving loss and loss peak frequency is identified. This parameter has a simple Arrhenius temperature dependence. The same behavior is found for four other viscous liquids, indicating that the phenomenon is possibly general
