Monday, 8 December 1862

Vastly fine all day.

Outlined the 2nd set of 30 drawings (!!!) & also worked at one or two of the first lot.

Accounts. ― Wrote to W.N. & Dickenson ordering 60 frames !!!!!!!!!!.

One newspaper only.

Col. Bowen came. And Mr. & Mrs. ˇ[Stephen] Cave. nice people, they were gently pleased with my drawings, & bought one “of the 60.” ― for 12.12.0[.]

Did not go out at all.

At 5.45. Stepahnizzi came ― & the lesson was ὀφέλιμος πολὺ.[1]

Dined at 7.

from 8. to 10. penned out a Palaioκαστρίτζα drawing.

An occupied day.

I fear Spiro’s little boy will not live. ―
