Not a great while after breakfast the mails, and afterwards the bag with the Despatches came, thus clearing away all my reasons for continuing in town. I therefore disposed of all my business, and went down to the train which leaves the Victoria Station at four. The trip was without incident, and I a little surprised the family with my presence. Quiet evening. read a little of Mr Massey. The chief peculiarity of this writer is the great freedom of his criticism on English royalty and its Institutions.
