Friday 17th April 1846

“Business of the day over early, left Wharf before 7 o’clock (unusually early).  Called on Ann at Mrs Kennington’s.  She was laid up last Monday owing to the fatigue of the previous day’s walk.  Had tea at the Silver Lion Coffee Shop in Goodge Street, Tottenham Court Road, met with there John Coombs, a former companion of mine whom I have not seen before for the last year past.”
