My business is writing letters and there is literally no end of it. I get in part through the arrears—after which I began to commit to paper the draught of a very critical note to Lord Russell. As it required some investigation I was obliged to leave it partly done until tomorrow. Had a visit from Mr R. Schleiden, the Minister from the House towns to the United States, who is on the way back from a visit home during the summer. I took a long walk, which now comes to be after dark. In the evening with the family.
