The Steamer’s letters came this morning. They are rather encouraging. Direction after breakfast I went with my son Henry to a place called Norwood Green, to look at a house which is to be let belonging to a Mr Bashford. The surroundings are not much, but in many respects it will answer well enough. We got back at one o’clock, when Mrs Adams and Mary returned also. Mr Parker and Mr Lothrop made farewell visits, as they go tonight to the Steamer at Queenstown. I finished Motley’s book, and resumed Stanhope’s Life of Pitt.193
