Clear and cold. I think it would do for home weather at the same period. Completed all arrears of work by two o’clock, and gave an hour to my relaxation of numismatics. I made one chance purchase at the last sale, at a price which I suspected to be rather high, but on examination, I find it very satisfactory. At four drove out in the carriage to return visits. Left my name at Marlborough House, also at Lady Palmerston’s and Lady Russell’s. Accomplished a number of visits in an hour. Then a walk by way of Picadilly and Hyde Park. Dinner and evening entirely alone. Continued the life of Julius Cæsar, the preliminary chapters of which are dull. Also one chapter of Mill.
