Sunday, 2 November 1862

Dark & sunless, all through: & damp.

Rose at 7.30 ― & wrote to Mrs. Decie: & made a writing wh. it is to be hoped Dalziels will sign. Stephen Spring Rice came to breakfast.

At 10.40. came to Barnes ― forgetting my umbrella. “Packed ―” from 11.30 to 12.30.

Sate with Bright Smith ―: & at 2 ― went to the Ld. Chancellor’s.

The Cardens & Slingsbys there, & “Dick” and Gussie. She is a very absolute goodness.

Walked across the Park with the men, & called at Fairbairns ― out.

Walked slowly home. ―

At 5.30 ― to Digby Wyatts ― where I passed a wonderfully pleasant evening.

Walked with Mr. Trelawney to Regent St. wholly delighted with him.

Home by 10.45.
