“Something extraordinary – sent to the London and Westminster Bank, Stratford Place, to pay in money. — To my surprise they refused taking it in. Sent message that Mr Mitchell, the proprietor, must see Mr Lea before he can take any more money in. Looks somewhat disgraceful [?]. — Took walk over Westminster Bridge — with Ann Fox — – it looketh quite a wreck with the loss of its balustrades and semi-octangular arches; being boarded in the carriage road is the present footway.”
