Gray: no rain all day!!!!! ― & 2 or 3 half-misty sungleams[.]
An odious day. Rose at 8.
Foord’s sent & put in the glass in Miss Goldsmid’s Corfû. ― I could not work ― but did Homer till 3. Then worked ― & better than usual, at the 2nd Corfû. ― At 5 ― walked to Mrs. Story’s ― & saw the 2 boys: back by 7.
In a cab to Cromwell Place ― what a crush of carriages & cabs in the Exhibition road!
The dinner at C. Norman’s was very praiseworthy: both of them I like very much: & the tout-ensemble was tasteful & good. Οὒτως ἣτον τὸγεῦμα
Walked partly home ― cab the rest, by 11.30. ―
 Dinner was as follows (NB).
