Tuesday, 25 September 1860

Dull, very dark, & more or less drizzle all day till 3. ― Worked a little at oil Damascus.

At 12 called on P. Williams: he is better.

Foords ― ordering the Cedar canvass to Oatlands.

Drummond’s ― meeting & walking with Digby Wyatt some way.

Dents ― to pay for a watch.

Then to Brompton ― tired.

Marion, Laura, Sidney: ― & then I sate till 6 with poor Fanny Coombe, who however goes on well. ―

Percy came, & Allen & Genést ― 2 boarders ― & then dinner. ― All very nice & pleasant.

They are a good lot of children.

Sang afterwards, & sate again with Fanny C. ―

Took away the Knowsley birds, ― & Damascus saddles, & home in a cab by 10.30. ―

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