Saturday 27th.1

Went to the French Minister’s. A very dark evening indeed. So much so that we could with difficulty keep the road, although it was straight all the way. Very few people there this evening in consequence. And I had quite a dull evening.
1. CFA spent the morning at home, reading Voltaire and Spenser and working on the Executive Record (D/CFA/1).
