Friday, 24 October 1862


A sad=weary day ― not idle, though.

The morning bother was sudden & unexpected.

No letter. Sent away Mrs. Ackroyd’s, Mrs. howard’s, & Sir T. Baring’s drawings, & had the Philæ fixed in.

Painted at the Olympus ― my sight being bad & not up to completing the birds & small detail of the Beachy Hd. ―― pretty well all day ― but cold & with Asthma.

Wrote to Mrs. Clive, Mrs. Prescott & Mrs. [sic]

And later to F. Css. Waldegrave ― declining Dudbrook & Chantilly: & to C.F. also.

At 4 or 5 ― sate with Bright Smith who gets somewhat better. ―

Dined at home ― cold beef & rice at 6. ―

The brute Gush now sees that the Coopers have to light
2 fires in his studio’s ―
1 ― in B. Smiths
1. in mine
1. in the new lodgers ―
5 ― in all ― yet lets them do it ― knowing that at present they cannot turn out & get a new place. ―

But ― παύσετε τό [two illegible words].[1] ―――

[1] You (plural) stop the [] (NB).

[Transcribed by Marco Graziosi from Houghton Library, Harvard University, MS Eng. 797.3. Image.]
