Monday, 16 February 1863

Gray ― early ― & cold: afterwards brighter, but colder.

(Trieste=Constantinople Steamer only in at 6. P.M.)

Set to work virulently on “Louisa” Rawson’s Philæ ― & worked pretty well all day ――― τοῦλάκιστον[1] till 5.30. ― and then pottered about other drawings till 6.30 ― when dinner ― as G. had to go to the Post before it would be too late.

(At 4. Sir C. Sargent called ― to ask me to walk, but I could not anyhow. ― He is very excited & sublimated=mediocre ― but[)]

Dined ― reading Finlay; & G. came in at 8 ― with one paper ――― no letters. ―

The day has been to me the coldest of this year: & at present is awfully cold. ―
