Another day of cloud and rain and darkness. The period of light is so short as to give little chance for much work. I finished up my arrears of correspondence as I commonly do on this day of the week, and returned a visit to the new French Secretary of legation, the Marquis de Cadore. The new Minister, Baron Gros has not yet arrived. Then a walk— In the evening a visit from Mr Sanford who stayed quite late.
