No great variety in my avocations. A great many notes to write and some people to see. But favor arrivals from America that common. The order for draftingseems to have put a stop to the travelling. A walk round the Park. We had to dinner Mr and Mrs Bigelow Laurence, Mr Dayton, son of the Minister and William Everett. My son Henry and Mary went out to spend a day or two at Walton with Mr Sturgis. Our company was lively and staid late. Paid a visit to he President of Liberia, Mr Binson.
