London to Southampton

of time. I saw St. Pauls & thought to make it out
from that but I got quite into a labyrinth
of streets. I left London at 5 oclock by the
S.W. Rail for Southampton & got there about
8 oclock & called on Smith Barry & Co Mr
's agents. they took charge of my luggage
& put in on board for me & told me that
the "Candia" would clear out at 7 oclock
next morning (Saturday) but that a steamer
would be ready at 11 oclock to take out
passengers I put up at the Crown Hotel
all night. where although a very good Hotel
& everything very clean to appearance I spent
a most miserable night. I thought I had
been served with some not inveterate
skin disease or other, but however the
morning proved the real nature of the case
my neck & arms testified very plainly[?] the
cause. I got up early posted a letter
or two & then took a walk out to see
Southampton I returned to breakfast
& shortly after found a friend of James
to whom I had a letter
