Mild with light rain. Some time spent in reading the newspapers from teh United States, which one the whole encouraged me, though not very strongly. There is yet no appearnce of hte strong organizing head and the vigorous hand which ought to finish this war by next April, if it is to be finished at all. Drove with Mrs Adams on some commissions, and then to the city where I transacted business with Messr Baring. All the partners were present and very busy. Then home. Afterwards I walked out and paid return visits to Mr C Howard and Messr Cobb and Guild. Evening at home. Read the memoir of Lord Castlereagh by his brother, the Marquis of Londonderry. Well meant.
