Thursday 7th May 1846

“Received information of Mrs Kitchener of Charley Freeman being ill with a consumption and not expected to live long. Heard first news of the lengthening of Dean Street by pulling down some houses in Gerrard Street and extending it to Leicester Square – whether true or no, time will prove. Dined at Watling’s Dining Rooms, Pimlico, for the first time with fellow clerk.”
