Describes his trip to the seaside (with his companion) for the benefit of his health. The author's diary of his holiday reveals how his attempt to write a 'second essay on the Binomial Theorem' was rudely interrupted by several street musicians playing simultaneously—an allusion to Charles Babbage (115).
