Tolerably fine ―― no rain.
More notes: ― wrote answers ― & arranged to go into the city by 11. when one Kennaway came ― & then C. & Mrs. & Annie Whittingham ― a most pleasing party: & Lawson.
At 12.30 ― I went to the Bank & got my 4 dividends ― £100.1.[blotted] this year. How I remember my dear Ann in these days! ― as indeed I ever do. It was too late to get this 100 into the funds, so that involves coming again tomorrow ― which can hardly be with the Deal or Sandwich journey. ―
Walked to Days ― & arranged lists &c.: & then home[.] C. Fortescue had called: Miss Yates ― written. Wrote to several ― & also to Lady James, giving up going to [Betterhanger] tomorrow.
At 3.30 ― walked to Downing Street ― & saw C.F. The Duke is a little better ― but very ill. The Corfu fortifications give trouble: Sir H.’s last dispatch is not pleasant. Walked home: & wrote.
Dined μοναχῶς ― but interrupted by payments & notes.
