A bright and cloudless day—a great rarity in this climate, though common in America. We spent a large part of it on the esplanade which was quite lively with people The air was rather sharp but bracing and fine, whilst the sun was clear enough to have some force in its rays. I think I could spend a couple of the months with short days here very pleasantly. The rest of the time I passed in writing a letter to my son John, and in the evening we had Whist.
