13th July 1825

This day I am 30 (or 33 I am not certain which)* & my health was drunk at Milton by 2 very pretty girls Mrs P;—r & Mrs B—n who wishd I might treble the number but I did not drink it in return. Henderson has promised me a curious 'Everlasting Pea' a climbing Rose the Monkey Flower Feather Hyacinth & some chrysanthemums.

* Wrong both times. He was thirty-two.
