Thursday, 23 January 1862

Fine ― warm ― cloudy at times.

Having to go to see the “Exhibitions,” did not begin oilwork. ― Placed a small Florence, & a large Jánina on canvass ― & squared a long Corfû.

Col. Maude sate from 11.30, to 1.30 ― a good-natured fellow ― but I grow weary of interruption.

Then Craven wrote ― asking me to go up to night.

At 2.30 ― went out & saw the Exhibition ― a necessary duty ― & pleasing enough in itself ― but, inasmuch as it brought me in contact with Le Mesuriers, Valsamachis, Woolffs, Capt. Clifford & others ― a bore.

Came home at 3 ―& squared the Corfu ― G. not in till 5.30.

Dined, & penned out Delvino till 11.

Bad night ― indigestion.
