An arrival of newspapers from America commonly tries equally my eyes and my temper for two hours, but this morning I was obliged to abridge the time for the purpose of finishing the Despatches and letters of the week. I did succeed in getting through with them in season to divine to the Barings for the purpose of supplying myself with friends for the journey which is fixed for tomorrow. We had visits from Sir Gore and Lady Ouseley and from Mrs Lampson who are also on their departure respectively. Quiet evening at home making preparations for my contemplated absence.
