Ojous headache. & cold.

Cold grey day.

Wrote to Georgio ― & Taylor & Drummonds ― (10£.)

(A dreadful headache all day from some particular ale ― of which I only drank one glass yesterday.)

At 3 Mrs. Davidson ― her son ― a very prepossessing intelligent youth ―& her daughters Father in law ― one Mr. Coen ― τὶ ὅμματα εἶχε! ((What eyes he had! (NB).)) ― came & looked at the Cedars. At 4 I walked out ― a round by Weybridge & back. Gloomy day ― but not frightfully disgusting ― windless & rainless τουλάχιστον. ((At least (NB).)) Wrote Greek a good deal ― lee-way of Thucydides.

Dinner. Evening ―

Wrote to Mrs. Musters: & Greek.

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