A very quiet day at home. I preserved my customary line of occupations and wrote the larger part of a letter to my son John. Afterwards drove with Mrs Adams to Treyford Abbey to return a visit of the owners, Mr and Mrs Thomas Wood, after which a walk. Having finished Pepys at last. I now resumed Lord Russell’s Memoir of Lord William Russell. A beautiful day.
