The weather continues mild and dull. I was occupied in preparing the Despatch of the week, which are not so voluminous as usual. But there are always numbers of incidental notes to be written which fill up the time. I had one or two visits. One from a Mr Ward who had proposed to present to me a Clergyman who has taken a leading part in behalf of our cause among the people of his parish. He excused him, but he had manifestly other objects, some which he did disclose, and some which he did not, as I found out afterwards. My usual walk and in the evening I continued reading orley Farm.
