Fine, though overcast.
Soldier called today with a curious knife. Poulter sent for me to go down. Had no idea what it was, but in the course of conversation the man said he used to work for White’s, a firm of boat builders in the Isle of Wight, who built the cutter used by Bligh of the “Bounty”.
This afternoon Mr. Warner, the bell-founder of Loughborough, called, bringing a huge fossil oyster dredged up at Burnham-on-Crouch. Conversation just getting interesting when
came in. Noticed with alarm that Poulter's voice is
getting very hoarse again. Hull
