The family seem generally suffering with colds, and I have an affection of my left eye which is annoying, if not durable. A visit of compliment from M Gutierrez, the Minister from Honduras. He, like all the South Americans deplores the loss of power consequent upon our civil war. The interference of Spain and France ought to teach us a lesson, for long. Walk early for the purpose of visiting the House agent, about the Ealing house. There is a little stick about terms. I agreed to call and dispose of the matter on Monday. Evening, as Brooks was at home, we made up a party at Whist.119
