Same lovely clear weather.

Cold & unwell all day. ―

Spiro’s boy is still dying.

Worked at the smaller of the 60 Tyrants.

Letters from Dickenson, & Mrs. Clive. ―

Wrote cheques for 50£ for Dickenson ― & shall get 30£ from Courage.

Did not go out.

Greek ― 5 to 6. Stefanizzi lesson to 7.

Then, went to Carter’s, ― for G. had had to get wood in, & the kitchen was full of it ―.

At Carters was a Mr. Baring ― nephew of Lord Ashburton ― a very nice fellow. At 8.30 ― or 9 ― he came home with me ― & I penned out till 10.30. when he left.

G. says the child still lives ― but ˇ[is] nearly dead.
