Quiet day, principally employed in bringing up the arrears of correspondence for the week. One or two visits from Americans who came in the Arabia. Messr Cobb and Guild from Massachusetts, with letters from Dr Putnam and Mr Solomon Lincoln. News came by the Scotia, but nothing of importance. The war moves in our favour, but with no decisive result. The change of Commanders has thus far been attended by no disadvantage. The test will be success or failure. Evening walk. And after dinner, cards with the children.
