The subject which presses most upon me just now is the controversy with this Govenment about the Alabama. Lord Russell has at length sent me an answer to my note, which must in its turn receive a rather elaborate reply. I began it today, but did not get far, as I was compelled to make a good many collateral investigations. Mrs Adams went with me to see Mrs Morey. Her account of her husband was on the whole rather favorable. Walk. William Everett dined with us and spent the evening. He looks thin and delicate.
