Fine at times, but very windy all day.

Dickenson’s men put in Mrs. Howard’s, Sit T. Baring’s, & Mrs. Ackroyd’s pictures.

Miss Head, & Ralph Nevill called.

Worked at Philæ, (Grenfell’s) & finished it; ― & at Beachy Head.

S.W. Clowes called. ―――――――――

At 4, walked to Mrs. Clives ― (meeting Terrick Hamilton, who at 80, seems 60.) & to C.F.s ― & home, where I found a note from C.F. ― (his Irish voyage postponed,) ― to dine at the Blue Posts. So ― cab there, ― & ordered dinner. Ordered Colenso’s Pentateuch ― & called at Foord’s; & at 7. to Blue Posts. A pleasant evening with C.F. I speak, /& write too ―) as strongly as I can about Marcorãn, & it seems to me, after the note I sent anent Macaulay & Evans taking the matter up ―― to some purpose: but I cannot tell yet. C.F. is very happy: & I am glad of it: & half think to fo down to Dudbrook. ―

Home by 10.30.
