Dull ― damp ― dark.
Worked only till 1 P.M. at the Bethlehem.
Then ― call on G. Middleton ― out.
Poi, walked home by Kensington, intending to make other calls ― but durst not cross the dazzly dirty dimmy slippery streets. Home before 6. Θουκυδίδης εὥς τὰς ἐπτὰ. ― ((Thucydides until 7 (NB).))
Cab to J. Edwards’ Club, dining with him.
This youth vexes me at times ― & I can’t see his way clear.
Home by 10.30.
