Rather a high wind from the Southeast, and a surf which repelled me from trying a bath in a machine. Took a cold one in the house instead. After breakfast walked with my daughter along the whole length of the parade to see houses. Visited a number of them and on our way back looked at some lodgings in Warrior Square. Caught in the rain on our way home which we weathered by taking a vehicle and having the aid of Mr Parker’s umbrella, when he met us. Not being satisfied as to the stabling I again went time without succeeding to find the agent. He afterwards came to my lodgings and I settled on taking one of his houses. No 96 Marina for a month certain. I make this arrangement for the pleasure of my family, but anticipating for myself little but added care and anxiety both for myself and the place in London. I have felt a little unwell for some days, and unaccountably depressed. Read some of Mr Massey’s History of England.
