Thursday, 20 December 1860

Drew £100 from Drummonds’ ― & placed it in the bank.

Vastly cold! ― After breakfast the 2 Campagna pictures were framed. W.F.B. came in ― but at 11 I went to Drummonds ―: poi Coutts. Then F.L. out. ― & so to Scott the bookers by 1. ― Then to the Bells; dear good Mrs. B. always oppresses me rather. ― Ἐκείνη ἡ φαμίλια ― δὲν εἶναι εύτυχῆς. ((That family ― is not happy (NB).)) ―

Walked back: ― various calls ― & home by 5.

F.L. came. ἡμέραι παρασμέναι ((Days past (NB).)) & went at 6.

At 6.20 J.B. Edwards: ― in a better mood ― his moods being more or less owing to φυσικὰ πράγματα. ((Natural things (NB).))

Went to his rooms, & saw his Carpets: & read some of Mr. Parker’s letters. ―

Dined with him at the club: & sate afterwards.

He is a fine fellow ― Jemmy. ―

Home by 10.30.
