Passed the day mostly in clearing out my Bookcases, ― & at times, in experimentalizing over the Jánina. Wade-Browne called. The C. Musters ― & Lady Goldsmid sent me game ― wh. I sent to the D. Wyatts, & F. Coombe.
At 6 to I. Bergmanns.
Kind people ― but the dinner & evening a dreadful bore, & I, being unable to hide, showed that I felt it so, wh. vexed me. Walked partly back with Mr. Baker.
