Saturday, 28 December 1861

Fine all day ― bright & not over cold.

Boles all wrong ― & headache.

Painted at Butrinto & Dead Sea ― but ill enough.

Post 2 papers ― weekly express {16th to 18th | 18th to 20th} & a letter from T. Cooper ―with Insurance receipt &c.

one also from C.F.

Mr. Harcourt died on the 19th! As F. says ― “surrounded by death on all sides ―” ――― one feels really.

I could not work any more but walked out at 4. ―Meeting the Herberts returned with them.

Dined at 6.45.

Penned out but little.

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