Having go t my despatches done, the next thing is to complete my private letters. I wrote to my son John, at length, and to other persons briefly. Mrs Adams and Mary got home today at three, having enjoyed themselves much in the thin trip through Southampton, Portsmouth, Chichester, Winchester and Salisbury. They have also lured Edward Brooks and his Wife down to London with them. In the evening I went to Thomas’s Hotel to see them, and remained until near eleven.
