Wednesday, 21 December 1859


Warmer. ― Cab to various places ― & at 12 to Leatherhead.

Poor Ellen! ―

Returned by 3.30 to London, & wrote & packed.] ((This passage appears in the page for 23 December, but would seem to describe what Lear did before getting back to London on 21.))

After returning from Ellen’s, I wrote, ― answers to many letters. ― Then at 5½ ― 7½ I made various shoppings & calls. ― At 7¾ ― 8¾ dined alone at the blue posts: ― regretting only that C.F. or F.L. did not come. ― The weather is warmer. Came home & wrote & packed till late.

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