Monday, 31 December 1860

Irritation. Rose at 7.30 ― packed: & at 8½ looked at rooms below ― & fixed to take them ― for [it’s] waste of all real & chance to leave the Masadas & Cedars.

At 9.15 to Rail ― cold & foggy: at Foords ― sending down 2 men to move the pictures. Called on Mr. Morier, & lunched with him & Miss M.: wonderful man ― 78 Αετ.

Most awful dirt & cold in London.

Waterloo ˇ[Station] before 4 ― [a sentence is crossed out].

Found the pictures moved ― & in the 2 new rooms: passed the evening in unpacking & rearranging ― weary work. ―

and so ends 1860.

ἐτελειώθη. ((It’s over (NB).))

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