Dame Dallaway at work at our house half the day. She dined with us on the remains of yesterday’s dinner with the addition of a currant pond pudding. Very busy all day. In the day read part of the 2nd volume of The Peerage of England. Paid Dame Dallaway 20d for 2½ days’ work. At home all day. In the evening read part of Wake’s Catechism. N.B.: I have not received back by Streeter any receipt for the money I sent by him today.
