I finished my long note to Lord Russell, caused it to be copied and sent it in the course of the day. I likewise sent a reply to another note. The usual Despatches were also made up for the bag, although there were none of material importance. A visit from Mr Lowell and his daughters who are off tomorrow. Long and quiet week and evening at home. The American newspapers came but they had less than average news. What there was of it was however favorable.
