Another fine day. Rather quiet, with the exception of visits of which I had many, the principal of whom from the United States. Almost all of them bring letters. I then went out on some commissions, and to see the house Agent about the house at Abbot’s Langley. I made him an offer, which he promised to refer to his principal. My own learning is rather to spend the next month in travelling, and to go out of town later. Quiet dinner at home. Mrs Adams and I went to see Mr and Mrs Sidney Brooks, but found them out.
