Mary’s wound seems to be taking a favorable turn. The swelling has subsided and Dr Cooper who has here gave me a satisfactory report. I remained at home, writing letters and reading the files of American newspapers. The reports from the disaffected region interest me the most. Under an appearance of determination I think I discover uneasiness and despair. The question of emancipation is now fairly launched, which is a prodigious stop. It will however be some time yet before opinion will develope itself— Much will depend also on the war. The day was beautiful. I walked to Turnham green and back— Young Mr Gaskell came out and dined and remained over.
