Very calm & fine all day ― & a wonderful sunset.
Rose at 7.15. ― Arranged to go on with Interlaken.
Very pleasant & kind & ‘courteous:’ but wholly without observation. She sate herself opposite the Cedars ― & looked at them barely once, then turned & said ―Do you take portraits? ― & then talked of her 6 sons. I showed her “Jerusalem” ― & she said, ah! ― oh ― yes ― & talked on as before.
When she went I worked at Interlaken. But at 3 came Mr. Sayer ― & I fancy wishing to come here ― odd enough. Mrs. S. Mrs. Shakespear & Ida are all unwell. ― At 4.30 I walked to Weybridge Station with him. Dined alone: penned out.
Reading ― “What will he do with it?” ―
μὲ πολὺν ἐυχαρίζησιν ((With great pleasure.))
