Same weather all day ― but not cold. At 5 it became clear ― & if tomorrow is good, I shall go to Cannes.
Worked all day at coloring Corniche drawings, the 1st 50 are done ― & 25 more commenced.
Called at the Deakins, & heard part of a letter from Mrs. Caldwell ― that Lady Herbert Mrs. Cunningham, & the Duchess of Neweasth have all “gone over” to Rome. ―― (Will (Lady J.F.W.?)).
Took watch to be mended & regulated.
Dined at 6.30 ― penned out till 9.30. Heard G. read. ―
Slowish life. No one came, & no letters.
