Sunday, 28 October 1860

Particularly lovely ― quite summer. ― Rose at 7 & wrote till 9.30. Ann, Gibbs, Elizabeth Beadon, ― Mrs. Clive, & Mrs. Scrivens.

Breakfast. Sir H. Willoughby amusing. ― Afterwards ― wrote & talked with C.F. ― & at 1 walked with Ward B. C.F. & Lady W. ― Lunch, pleasant. ― Read. Later, Duc d’Aumale. ― Later, finding no one about, walked solo ― Teddington, Hampton Wick, & back by 5.30. Talk till dinner.

Miss Cyfritt & the Miss Moneys & Lady Ida W. ― too much chaff ― Ward B. &c. ―

Table turning ― wh. bored me awfully.

Later, more in my elephant ― tiring ― till 11, when Lady W. went to bed.

Τὶ πράγματα. ((What [extraordinary] things! (NB).))

Ὅναρ ― εἶναι ἡ ζωῆ μας: βέβαιως. ((Dream ― is our life: sure.))

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