A succession of heavy wind, and storms this week. I had rather a leisure day. A visit from Sir Henry Holland and then out with Mrs Adams in the carriage. News from America which once more created the uneasiness from which I had been free for a week. The slowness of General McClellan is becoming more and more painful. Much depends on his use of the remnant of this season. We had Mr and Mrs Blatchford and Mr Bates to dine, and in the evening Mr Arthur Kinnaird who could not dine, but wished to meet Mr Blatchford.220
