A quiet day, writing up arrears of Diary, and a letter to Mrs Adams. Only a single visit from Mr Baxter, the member for Montrose, but living at Dundee. He has been on e of our most thorough and unflinching friends during the struggle, and is now jubilant in proportion. Drove out to pay visits at various houses. Stopped to see Mr Lampson who has been ill with this influenza, which continues to prevail. In the evening a visit from Mr Alward, after which I went to Lady Palmerston’s,taking up General Barlwo on my way. Her Ladyship was not visible, having a cold. A large assemblage. I got home before midnight.
