Clouds and heavy rain at night. Busy in the routine of private letters which kept me until nearly five o’clock. Henry came back from his trip in Yorkshire, thus relieving a little of our solitude.179 Walk not quite so long as common owing to the driving of the wind and rain. We had to dinner Mr Hughes, without his Wife who had a cold. H T Parker and his Wife, Mr Hazard of Rhode Island, and the two Secretaries of the Legation. They remained until after eleven o’clock.
