Once more established in my routine of Office here, but not cheerfully. To confess the truth I have felt so easy when removed from the newspaper press and the anxieties of telegrams, that my return seems like lifting my burden again. A great pile of papesr had accumulated on the table again, and I set to work this mroning to dispose of them. My time taken up in writing Despatches and notes as well as private letters. After the close of the bag I went out in the carriage with Mrs Adams and returned some visits which had been paid me during my absence. Evening quiet.
