Saturday, 25 January 1862

if possible ― fairer: perfect calm & sunshine.

Worked at all 4 Corfus ― figures & goats.

Letters from
A. Empson ―
Mrs. Musters
J. Edwards
Ellis Ashton
& Mrs. Bell.

At 5 ― went to Ascension.

Dined at 6.45.

Penned out ― but not much; as there were 2 papers, the Westminster, & 2 vols. of Turner’s life[1] ― all come to day ― to read.


[1] Probably Walter Thornbury’s The Life of J.M.W. Turner, R.A. 2 vols. London: Hurst and Blackett, 1862.


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