Saturday, 20 December 1862

Rain again! ― no wind, though.

Worked at some of the 60 tyrants: but passed time in writing envellopes [sic] for letters.

A letter from Ellen ― which has lain here 10 days by a mistake. ― Cave called & sate: they are off to Arta tonight.

Letters from
T. Cooper ― poor Bright Smith still lives.
Gush ―
W. Evans ― The “Corfu” is safe at Allestree.
& F.L. enclosing Photographs of At & ET.[1]

Not so unwell ― but still in pain from boles at times.


[1] I think this is the first use of this monogram for Emily Tennyson.
