Wednesday 10th June 1846

“Took trip up and down the Grosvenor Canal in Mr George Lea’s boat. Very awkward with the sculls, being quite unused to them, and had like to got into mischief by nearly getting capsized by a large vessel, but I got out of the way and escaped the danger. Afterwards George Palmer, horsekeeper, took me all round the Basin. Discombe brought home new shoes, tied with strings, and of light make, being certainly the neatest pair of shoes that I ever had, having neither tips or nails. Price 10s.”
