The missing bag reached me in the course of the morning, and brought with it a number of Despatches which required immediate attention, as I proposed to go with my family in their excursion, if I could dispose of them at once. This and the usual private letters absorbed all day. As our trip is to be a continuous ones, I also busied myself in finishing up answers to letters here, and the settlement of accounts. On the whole, this left me little leisure until late in the night. Called and took leave of G May.
