Friday, 7 November 1862

Finer ― but colder. Evening foggy & horrid.

Bright Smith much the same ― poor fellow. No human being could be more patient & gentle.

Dickenson came ― to whom gave orders, & 50£.

Took Medicine Chest to Chemists: ordered a new trunk.

Called on Mrs. Leake. Mr. Marsden there.

At 2 or 3 ― paid W. & Newton, Roberson, B. & Bush, Keed, & [Bumpus]. ― walked to the Chancellor’s, & sate a long time with dear little Gussie, who is absolutely good & sweet & delightful.


A cab back, & at 7. to F.L.’s, ― where, with him & “Kate” I passed a pleasant Evening.

Home in a cab at 10.30.2012 Arranged & fussed till 12.
