Morning, gradually recovering, but very slowly. Weather still con•
tinues rainy and damp so that I did not venture out. Amused myself in reading Gaieties and Gravities1
and many other books, but felt rather dull on the whole at continuing in the house so long. In the afternoon amused myself in writing to my Mother.2
George came in both in the afternoon and evening but staid only a few moments each time. Went to bed early.
