There being little to do at the legation today, I agreed to go with Mrs Adams and continues my examination of the Exhibition. It was the day of admittance for a shilling and therefore uncomfortably crowed. I added but little to my preceding observations. I am now tolerably familiar with the best pictures and sculpture. There are however still some departments left wholly untouched, which I could not approach today, ans I could not leave Mrs Adams in the crowd. We remained until five o’clock and then drove home. At dinner we had Mrs Durant, Mr P Harris, Mr Bates and Mr Tucker. Much conversation about Japan where Mr Harris has been highly useful for many years.204
