In proportion as the weather moderates it becomes misty at this season, and the walking becomes unpleasant from the slimy mud on the pavements. My day slipped off almost insensibly, though I did little beyond my usual duty of writing letters. I went out with Mrs Adams and examined some things for Christmas presents. A walk, but not so long as usual. Evening at home. Whist with the family.
