Tuesday, 3 February 1863

Same cloudless beauty of weather ― summer ― not winter.

Slept ill. Medicine. ―

Worked pretty hard, & finished Nos. 15 ― 16 ― 17 ― 18 ― & 19. & a good deal of 20. So really the 30 Tyrants are progressing ― ὅμως[1] slowly.

Walked a little ― going out at 5 ― falling in with De Vere. He tells me ― news is come from Athens that the D. of S. Coburg accepts the Gk. Throne ― succession to his Cousin ― the son of Princess Clementine Bourbon ― & a Coburg.

At 7. to the Loughmans’: the son, Alexander L. there: & “Tonina.” Pleasant enough, & I for one tried hard to make it so. Mrs. L. is a good deal like dear Ann, for sheer goodness. ―

Later came the 2 Boyds & Miss Ragnanean. ―

some singing.

What moonlight!
