Monday, 6 October 1862

Rose at 6. Fine day[.]

Breakfast at 8. with George S. ― a singularly observing & amiable man. Mrs. G.S. ― I regret to say, has suffered by her visit to Pitnacree, inasmuch as she has adopted the loud tone & violent speech of her mother. However, she is kindly woman.

So at 8.20. G.S. went down with me, & I set off, William & Mrs. W.S. being inside: but, happily, we talked little ― & town at 11.

Few letters. C. Fortescue came: ― a gulph opens between us after the marriage.

We talked of Storx, & Ionian affairs ― which go not on well.

All the afternoon I arranged & packed to send things to Corfu ―: destroyed letters &c.

Dined solo at 7.
