Friday, 24 February 1860

Sent letter to A. E. Tennyson.

Very fine. We packed & were off at 9½ ― & ― (roads dreadful!) at Cervara grottoes by 11½. ― There I worked tooth & nail at 2 views, till 4. ― ―

home by 6. ―

Dined alone, & penned out till 11 from 7½ ― writing first to F.L.

Mr. Wilson came ― & took on hisself [sic] to lecture me for not going out, overwork, Hugh Miller &c. &c. ―: to which I thought ― o ass! ― but said nothing. ―

My bad cold in eyes & head not improved by the day’s work.
