Tuesday, 23 December 1862

Very stormy ― beamy ― gleamy ― thunder, hail, calm, rainbows, ― squash ― squalls.

No letters.

Sent letters to T. Cooper, Gush, Drummond’s ― Ellen F.L. ― Gussie Bethell, & W. Evans.

Worked at 3 ― Athensses ― of the 60 Tyrants.

At 6.30 ― Boyds.


Pleasant ― in a way: & by fits. But they will converse afterwards: bad music.

Later, conversation was better: ― but ετζι κ’ ετζι.[1]

Dark stormy night ― (new moon.)

home by 10.30.

The giving up of the Islands still the theme.



[1] So so.
