Monday, 18 August 1862

Gray. No rain. After 3 or 4 ― fine.

Came away at 8 ― after breakfast, with R. Decie, & with him to town.

Cold & unwell. ―

Worked badly ― & not much at Adml. Robinson’s Corfû.

C.F. came: he is off tonight to Ireland ― a time of importance to him.

At 3 ― came Major Reynolds & Miss Yates. At 6. called on Mrs. Drummond Woolff ― out; ― met C.F. & C. Braham: & R. Phillimore.

At 8 ― to E.A. Drummonds.

And, in spite of my being poorly ― the dinner was so good, I got better. O grouse! Very pleasant evening.

E. & A.D. walked to Stratford Pl. with me.
