Worked at the Psororoũs, & actually finished it, & took it in a cab to Foords ― had it framed in, & then took it to 61. Eaton Place, where I lunched.
Home by 3 or 4. Poor dear old Psororoũs!
At 3.40. went to Waterloo Station ― & by 5 was at Putney ― & soon at the Granard Lodge. (Lady Webster’s, but let to H. Farquhar.) Mrs. F. came in ― after I had been all about the beautiful gardens: & I talked a while. she has much good sense & is a good woman. ―
Bye & bye H.F. ― Theophilus Clive & Mrs. C. came.
But the dinner was not interesting: & difficult to get through: ― pity ―: since the host & hostess are kindly folk.
And the evening was peggior.
Bed at 11.30.
The good old Archibishop of Canterbury died to day. ――
