At home all day. It was quite cold a light snow was falling for a few hours. Employed myself for the most part on a numismatic catalogue which I had priced, and in the usual writing. Took a long walk on the Harrow Road to Perevale, Drayton Green and Ealing. The day of our departure is now at hand, so that I am doubtless making my farewell visits. The air though keen was bracing. Mrs Adams went to London, and brought home Brooks and the last America fies which I read in the evening. Mary continues improving.
