We received our private letters this morning which are encouraging in their tone. The newspapers likewise give us accounts of the cavalry conflicts which are distressing, and more particularly that they lead to no apparent results. I drew up a note to Lord Russell, and afterwards went with Mrs Adams to pay a visit to the Duke and Duchess of Argyll. We found her only at home— She always talks of America, which is just the subject I like the least. But her disposition is so kind and favorable that it is far more tolerable to do so in her case than in most others. From thence I went to return visits of Mr Griswold at the Grosvenor Hotel and of Mr Kuirney at Morley’s. The evening was passed quietly at home. The turmoil of the season is manifestly dying out. God be praised.406
