Rain early ― after 12.
Bother. The dim ― disturbed, apathetic woe of other days: ― only, thank God, it was daily then.
Wolstenholme ― cum Vincent, ― & Mr. [Tippuy] came ― all three pleasant. Worked at the Florence ― but little.
Later came Visscountess Strangford, & the Spanish Lady ― Miss (Guy=Angus ―) Gaiángos. ―
Unwell & disinclined to go out, the more that it threatened rain; but I thought it would be unkind not to go ― so dressed, & a cab to G. Middletons.
O dreamy fuzzy Mrs. M.: It was near 8 before we sat down to dinner.
The small boy Middleton is potius aper.
Happily ― for it poured with rain at 10.30 ― I got a cab home.
Home by 11.
