Not so cold.
Finished Letterpress. R. Francillon came. ―
At 1 ― went to Days ― & gave orders for 500 copies.
Came home ― & then called at Mrs. Holfords ― which May Lindsay’s has a

Came, Col. F. Chapman ― wonderfully little altered ― & as happy-jolly as ever.
After ― dined μοναχῶς.
Various letters: ― no end.
