Wednesday, 26 December 1860

[Perfectly] awful cold. Left after breakfast ― & rail ― (Mr. Robertson in carriage ―) to London by 11. Called at Drummonds & then to Stratford Pl. ― & back to Waterloo by 12.30 ― then ― rail to Weybridge, & at Hotel by 2.

Arranged all ― a beautiful letter from W.H.H. ― to whom I wrote.

Walked on the terrace till 5 ――― then arranged rooms.

6½ dined. Hardman there.

Afterwards from 8 to 9½ scraped figures in the Masada. ――
