The call to London did not come, so in spite of the greatest heap of letters on my table that has ever been upon it in one week I remained in peace. The weather boisterous and variable, so as to make exercise difficult excepting on the pavements. I noticed the setting of the sun before four o’clock. read nearly all the remainder of Leigh Hunt. And in the evening continued Hawthorn.
