Mrs Adams went to town leaving only myself and Mary at home. Answered letters in the morning— At Luncheon I perceived from Mary’s appearance that he suppuration was coming back again in the wound. Finding the trains did not serve I decided to walk into town to see the Surgeon. Mrs Adams passing me took me in the carriage half way, and at Notting Hill I got a hansom so that I was in town by five, Erickson was not at home. Finding Henry at Portland place I left him to see him and returned at six. He and Erickson came out to dinner. He now lanced the wound, and returned to town. Heavy storm.160
