Same weather: always perfection.

Breakfast 8. ―

Letters from E. Wilson, Lady Goldsmid, D. Wyatt, & T. Cooper: wrote to the 3 latter.

Penned out Ithaca drawings till 1.

Edwd. Wilson came. Lunch with him, & then drove to Sibley ― to Thorne, a Mr. Morgan’s, where E.W. wishes to see a Mill. O! we saw the mill & short horns ― cows ― a bull ― calves ― pigs: ― corn ― cornfields ― & a hydrollick ram.

And left at 5[.]

Mr. Morgan was a pleasant & agreable Gentlemanly man. ―

Dined with E.W. at the Queen’s at 6.30 pleasantly. I wonder if I talk too much. Later, we walked on the beach ― & had tea at 9.

Bed at 10.

Emma Penrhyn & Mrs. Hare have called today! ―
