Sunday, December 17th. [1848]

A Mestizo lady called this morning for medical advice. Mr. N. interpreted for her, and I thought she never would get to the end of her story, mixing into her case her present, past, and future history, and that of her relations. Breakfasted at the hotel at nine o’clock, after which Mr. N. and I accompanied the purser on board the “ Plymouth,” where we took tiffin, and afterwards dined with Captain Gedney. Yours, &c.
