Monday 20th.

Arose very late owing to the darkness of the morning. It rained very heavily for the first time since my arrival here. Detained at home all day, occupied in very little. A little of Columbus in the morning and the life of Byron in the remainder of the day. Little news of any kind. { 298 } Evening quiet with the family. The political affairs of the day are now rapidly approaching the crisis. I wish it over very heartily.
