Remarkably mild 50 degrees and not at all like Christmas Eve. Sun shone all day with a warmth that was perceptible Got the joint, beef, and other provisions. Took some presents to the Child's for Mrs. Child to give to the children. Young John Child came in crying, another boy had given him a walloping, but he soon forgot it. Mrs. Child gave us some eggs. Thence to Wimbledon and got home late by half an hour. Cleaned the windows earlier in the day.
