Morning fine. I found my Wife a little better but recovering very slowly. Office where I was occupied in Accounts and arranging my papers which seem to get prodigiously out of order. My indolence or my occupations must be great for no person has a greater medley of things to attend to.

Called in to see the pictures and found much company. The Madonna gains on one by acquaintance. A seraphic face certainly. But there are now too many people to be at one’s ease or see conveniently.

Home. Sophocles. After which I began in earnest upon the Athenaeum coins, many of which I find curious and valuable. The experi-404ence this will furnish me will be a great aid to my own acquisitions in future. Evening at home pursuing the subject.
