Mild and foggy. I had visits from Messr C W Brooks and Hunnewell from Massachusetts. They proceed at once to the continent. Henry left us to pay a visit to Mr Munchton Milnes in Yorkshire, so that I seemed quite solitary. Went out for the purpose of making some payments. The evening is now at tits earliest so that it really gives us but six hours of effective daylight. Evening Miss Lampson dined with us—and we had Whist.
