A snow storm all day reminding me much of our New England weather. The temperature was not however low enough to keep it firm. As a consequence, the streets were in worse condition than I ever before saw them Busy in my private letters which absorbed the day light. There has been no arrival from America to break the week, and dullness prevails here. Parliament is summoned for the 7th of next month, and officials are gradually resuming their posts; but the impression that this is the last session, and a new Election is to take place in July paralyzes all extraordinary movement. Quiet evening— Engaged in reading Mill and Palfrey.
