The season is now over and the great world is going out of London. My time is therefore very much at my own disposal, I was able to devote some of it to the reading Mr Motley’s book which has been so long before me. Mary was better today, and the Dr gives us hopes that she may be out by Saturday. I took a walk and spent a quiet evening at home. When have I had so short a record to make?
