A quiet day, with little interruption. Disposed of my correspondence which is getting less and less burdensome, and devoted a little while to numismatics. Completed my survey of the historical jettons But I need the work of van Loon on the subject, which I have not access to here. Some time or other, when released from the cases of public life, if I survive, I may find this occupation quite a resource. Walk by the way of Hyde Park—and quiet evening. Continued Sir Henry Holland’s Essays, which are on the whole very interesting. Although not always concurring with him in his views, they always seem to present an attractive and well sustained side.
