Variable with a smart shower of hail. Attended Divine service at the Chapel. Mr Martineau preached a strong and eloquent discourse upon the standard of human duty. He is not often direct in his style, having a nice metaphysical turn, but he is occasionally as today vigorous and dignified. I had a visit from Mr H. T Parker and Mr Thomas Baring. Then a walk in the course of which I called to see Mrs Haight, who brings letters from Mr Dayton. Quiet evening.
