Many continues to improve, but her physician is not yet free from uneasiness. Yet I am thankful to the Divine mercy that no drawback has thus far taken place. My work of preparing Despatches was very light, there being no bag this week. But before four o’clock it came by a later Steamer and brought many things of consequence, which occupied me a good deal. I took my walk however with Brooks around the Regent’s park. My wound is healing rapidly and well. It is a relief to my mind to have the matter no longer to think of. I dined with Mr Sanz, the Peruvian Minister at Maurigy’s Hotel. The company consisted of Sir Edward Cust, Mr Martin, the Minister of Central America, Mr Sampson the money writer for the London Times, and Consul for somewhere, and a number of others whose names I did not know. Of course conversation with Spaniard’s is not easy— However Mr Sanz is always civil and courteous, so that I accept his ventures in the most friendly spirit. Home by half past ten.
