Arrived there, ― going for a cab, which cost 4/ but found W.N. much “out of sorts,” seeing that Willie is ill ― & they fear fever. ― I ― ἀυτὸς ἐγὼ, ((I, myself (NB).)) ― do not know what to think of this. ― ――― I was, dunque, ((Therefore.)) not to sleep there. ―
Dressed in W.N.’s room. ― The Dinner was, 1. W.N. 2. E.L. ― 3. Ralph ― a nice good & clever lad, 4 Milnwood, ((Milwood in the chart below.)) 5. Mrs. Milwood, 6. Jane Oridge! ― 7. One Mr. Leashman? 8. His sister, Mrs. Black, 9-10 ― Mr. & Mrs. Windsor, 11-12. Dr. & Mrs. Tunaley. 13. Susan Head 14. Mr. Tilly.
The dinner, however plenteous, was singularly ill arranged & served ― & poor W.N. was sad. When the ladies went he was as opposite ― so that I was glad when we left.
The Mr. Windsor seemed a Danish Merchant, & knew Marstrand ― & Pugaãrd ― whom I dimly remember to have brought me a note in Stratford Place in 1850. Converse chiefly  [on] the Road murder. ― Easy ― music & some singing. ― Sent home in a phly ― at 11¾ .
