I went out again to attend the sale today. There was even a smaller number than yesterday. But the prices were relatively higher. I bought but a single coin, a very fine and rare tetradrachm of Attalus. On my way home I called to see Mr Morey and the ladies. He looks wonderfully better. Dined with the Peruvian Minister. Another entertainment given to the Vice president who is returning to become President in the place of the one elected who has died. Much the same company as before, with the addition of Sir Edward Cust, who sat next to me and thus relieved the tedium.402
