Weather positively sultry, and the sun quite powerful. I had much to do in my private letters home and in disposing of a considerable accumulation of arrears caused by my absence. Mr Evarts paid me a visit. He finds not much to do, and so he accepts hospitalities which are freely tendered. To Americans furnished with good letters, access to society is not difficult, especially when there is no lady in the case. A long and rather tedious visit from Mr Matson, a young man who was here some time since. Walk with my daughter in the Regent’s park. Mrs Blatchford dined with us.
