In this quiet retiremen, there is little to record. It is surprising to me how much I enjoy it. The absence of all cause of anxiety or irritation public or domestic constitutes the great contrast to London life. I drew a Despatch or two and sent them to London. Took a drive to Bexhill and Sidley’s green with Mrs Adams; Mary accompanied us on horseback. It is quite a pretty region. Evening, more of Mr Massey.
