Exceedingly fine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

& all day too!

Rose at 6. Homer till 9. But then in no comfort in the look out of the room.

Breakfast 9.30. not unpleasant. The young lady next me I suddingly found to be a niece of Walter Fawkes, & grand niece of Mrs. Wentworth!! ― Talk thereof ― & queer internal recollections. Mary Wentworth lives at Cheltenham. Lady Hancock “Dora W.” in Kent. Charlotte, (“we never mention,”) &c. ―

Boles all shut up ― so I couldn’t “do” church ― & staid at home, & ‘did’ Homer. At 1. Dawdlings in the Garden ― & at 2, lunch. & thenceforth ― fresh dawdle ― poky ― standings to & fro: till at 3 we ― 10 of us ― Mildmay, Clive, A. Clive, Finch EL H. Farquhar, Miss Mildmay & Miss Keesby (?) ― Clifford & Winthrop made a pleasant merry walk ― & very pretty it was too. After returning we sate ― & had tea ― & then went into [] rooms &c. &c. &c. ― Dinner οὔτως[1]
