Wednesday, 21 January 1863

Violent N-W. wind all day. Towards evening ― & up to 10. ― tremendous.

Passed an uncomfortable & almost sleepless night ― a big steamer waking me ―― so I did not rise till 8. ―

Worked at Nos. 21 & 22 ― (which I finished ―) & No. 23. ― Smaller 30 Tyrants.

Major Bethun came ― a nice fellow. Mrs. Lyell later ― a nice woman.

Later, Dr. Roberts, Captn. Wilkinson & his 2 children ― all nice people, but they took up a nice lot of time.

Did not go out.

Stephanizzi 6 to 7.

Dined.

Penned out ― (A. Procopius.) till 10.

Sea & wind frightful.

No steamer (due on 21st) in yet.

Partly from indignation ― partly from the awful noise & confusion ― sleepless & ill all night.
