Thursday, 27 November 1862

At 3 ― a most awful storm of wind & thunder & pouring rain ― so that all the house waked up.

Rose late ― no sleep. Frightful rain all day long.

Worked at Charlton’s drawing of [Paoliana], & Cav. Marcoran’s of Strongili, ― & finished both.

Went out at 4 ― & tried to, but could not find Viletta. Called on the De Veres ― & Creykes & Boyds: all pleasant visits.

Dined at 6. & translated. A.P. Stanley from 8 to 10.

Letters from C. Fortescue ― ˇ[date] 10th
& T. Cooper ―.
