After the morning exercises I went down to give King the last sitting, which has been hanging over as a bore for some time past. He has not made a good picture in my humble opinion but as it is not for me, I should not say even quite as much as I do. I wrote in the afternoon a long letter to Abby and spent the evening, after a ride with John, alone in my room, as the ladies were gone to my Uncle’s.
