Gray ― or bright at times ―― fine all day. Rose before 7 ― Greek till 8. ―
Letters from, F.L. ― Mrs. Prescott & Ellen,
Wrote to F.L. ― Sir J. Simeon, Mrs. W. Ransom, Ellen,
Worked at the Prescott Corfus, & looked over drawings to send.
C. Fortescue came ― & we had no end of talk about the new state of things ― wh. however is confided to so many that I doubt it’s remaining unknown till Xmas ― particularly as old Bonasus G.W. knows it. The dismissal of Judges at Corfu also occupied us & much else.
It seems, Boswell has been here, as well as to Ellens. At 5 ― called on A. Peel ― & Mrs. [Hankey], & Macleans, ordering dinner at the Blue Posts, where, at 7.30, I & C.F. dined. ― a merry & pleasant 3 hours,
& perhaps the last Blue Postious’ dinner we may ever have together. I told him this ― & by degrees he thought so too.
Home by 11, & did some Greek.
