Clouds and rain. Quiet day, with less of Despatch writing than usual. Though a great many letters came from Mr Seward, they were almost all of them formal. I think I perceive in him a change of manner, as if he had become weary of his work. A little leisure devoted to numismatics, to which I also devote part of my evening. The accounts from Walton continue favorable. Walk around the outer line of the Regent’s Park. A visit from Mr Parker. Mr Headland came in to prescribe to Mrs Adams. Continued the Essays of Sir Henry Holland.
