Slept ill, & rose late. No letters.
Worked very hard all day ― at Lady Strangford’s Masada ― & others. F.L. & “K.L.” called.
Hearing from Bright-Smith that the new tenant Mr. Oldham is to have the hall & stairs painted, I fume. ―
Walked a little from 5.30 to 6.
Dined at 6.45 ― with F. & K. Lushington: ― I don’t know if I talk too much, ― but the sad silence forces me so to do. ― There is much to be sad about. ―
Sang a little.
