Friday 6th November 1846

“Whilst mending a pen this morning, the knife slipped and gave me a very nasty cut on the middle finger. I hastened to the chemist and bought a pennyworth sticking plaster.  In evening strolled into Richmond’s Auction Rooms, Rathbone Place. Moore the toyman’s house in a very dangerous condition propped up with deals, the inhabitants being obliged to make a hasty quittal, the foundations having gave way and the front wall bulging forward, which, but for the support offered to it, would in all probability before this time have been level with the ground.”
