Friday, 25 January 1861

Rose at 7.30. Dull ― dark. ―

Wrote a long letter to J.B.E. διὰ τὴν Κυρίαν Λίζαρ. ((About Mrs. Lizar (NB).)) & a reply to a nice letter from the Comte de Paris.

Ann came at 11 poor dear: she grows sadly aged. ― Sarah S. goes to her tomorrow.

Worked from 10.30 to 3.30 ˇ[or 4] at the Bethlehem.

At 6 Dr. Gray’s ― Mrs. Gray though 75 ― is really the same lively kindly woman as ever: Mrs. Stokes also ― as pleasant. She ― Sophia Gray as was ― has one little girl 10 years old ― Emina Gray ― Mrs. Smith ˇ[only] one boy: as old. There were Mallets & various people ― 11 at dinner.

A young Hungarian ― ([] ―) played wonderfully on the Piano. ― I sang ― but not well.

At 10.30 cab home.
