Wednesday, 23 October 1861

Bother. Very fine all day. But Dalzells’ people came, & Mr. Bergmann early: & later Woolner & Palgrave, & later Jessie Foy & Emily Jones ― which last staid a long time. Jessy must have been amazingly pretty ―. ――― ἀλλὰ ((But.)) ―――

I painted very little, except that early Ι repainted Mr. Whitmore’s sky & Ducks, & reddened the hills.

I had no heart to go out ― so dined at home on cold beef.
