To Stratford Place: & found a letter from C.F. very nice.

Bus to Angel ― & walk by Highbury to Woodberry.

Only W.N. & Susan Head.

Willie is better ― (but it was scarlet fever,) & at Gresham St.

Afternoon immensely happy ― & so brilliant & beautiful! ― At 4 in pony chaise to St. John St. ― & cab to Waterloo Station.

Young middy in carriage ― who took out lots of chocolate to give a little child: ― a nice English boy. He had been at Corfû & to Crimea in the “Hannibal” ― & at Australia in the “Abu? dair? ――――― ?[”]

He was a well-informed & pleasant lad!

Moonlight. Walked to Hotel.

Bed early. ―
