Abstract:

Describing excursions, especially with his son Julian, and daily activities, and recording observations and ideas for future stories. Noting (on June 11, 1855) that "Dickens evidently is not liked nor thought well of by his literary brethren--at least, the more eminent of them, whose reputation might interfere with his. Thackeray is much more to their taste. Perhaps it is for his moral benefit to have succeeded late."
