A pretty hard day of labor. I had supposed that as no long Despatches were in hand I should get through them soon. But there were so many that they made up in the number. I likewise wrote private letters to Mr Everett and to my sons. There was no very material interruption either. Mr Forster came in but did not stay long. His enquiries here rather modified his opinions about the chance of recognition. It was half past five o’clock before we got quite through. A walk around the Regent’s park,by a bright moon and a very clear sky. Evening, continue Orley Farm to the family.278
