Walked to the Capitol but remained there only a few moments. In the evening, I went to a Private Concert given by Mr. Vaughan. It was rather dull, and I got into a bad humour owing to a difficulty with Mr. Bankhead, as I cannot tolerate rudenesses from foreigners of his pretensions. I had a good deal of conversation with Mr. Macready; he is a pretty agreeable man. We returned before the Concert closed.


In the morning CFA stayed at home, continuing his reading of Voltaire and Spenser (D/CFA/1).
