Owing to the nonarrival of the Steamer I had no Despatches to answer. But there were several matters left incomplete last week, so that I had work enough to keep me pretty well engaged all day. The labor of this Legation is consistently on the increase, and the number of private letters addressed to me multiplies. Walk at evening, and after dinner read a part of the memoir of Major Hodson, a cavalry Officer in India.292
