Tuesday, 9 December 1862

Sudden change in weather: wind, cloud, & rain all day long.

Worked at times, at 3 or 4 of the tyrants. but I was interrupted. Col. West came ― & wishes for a drawing. Then Sir C. Sargent; ἔπειτα[1] Clark.

At 4 I went out ― & called on Mr. Baillie & Mrs. Cave ― & walked to Kastrades ― when it poured with rain, & I came back, overtaking Sir C.S. & Creyke, with whom stood up under the temple for a while.

Wrote Gk. From 5.30 to 7. Dined on a duk [sic]. From 6 to 7 or 8 ― tremendous wind & rain. Depression of spirits after all day.

Alas! Ann will not come back to me!

Penned out from 8 to 10. ―

‘So best’ ― as R.A.H. used to say.


[1] Then.
