Friday, 17 June 1859

Lovely morning, ― yet I could not rise early.

Breakfast, & afterwards, wrote to Mr. Howard, Mr. Clive & others, till C.M.C. came in. Then with him, went to the Cathedral, & to Mr. Pindus’s: ― & to reading room.

Lunch ― {qu: dinner?) one Smart, formerly a pupil at Carey’s ― now a clergyman here, minor canon. Odd enough, the talk of [Haighton], Martineau, Lockyer, & others. ― ― ― Read ― wrote ― & walked with C.M.C. to be photographed: ― read Times. ― ˇ[Bishop’s Gardens]
At 5.40 in Fly to Wookey ― Mr. Stewart’s. Very nice people. Dr. & Mrs. Storer, & 2 daughters ― a Miss Franklin &c.

One Dr. & Mrs. Ward: ― as talked.

More useless bored ―.―

[Transcribed by Marco Graziosi from Houghton Library, Harvard University, MS Eng. 797.3.]
