July 4th.—Went to London, relative to my hand-moulds;* transfer of some stock to the French funds; to see about fresh boring and breeching my swivel gun ; to try about getting a patent for the cure of smoky chimneys; and to hear the celebrated pianoforte player Moscheles, &c.
8th.—Having executed all business to my satisfaction, and had the delightful treat of hearing Moscheles, I this day returned to Longparish House.
