Same wonderful weather ― but cold.

Rose ― 7.30 ― better but unwell.

At 9. Sir H.J. Storks (& Straham) came. It was a pleasant show the 60 drawings to him ― real interest & intelligence. Moreover he bought 2. ― so 12 out of the 60 are gone.

Wrote to sundry ― asking them to come. The Pigotts wrote later ― disclaiming all idea of purchasing drawings.

Worked at the P. Pelissier piny ponderous perilous painting.

A case came ― by the [Tibor]: containing some frames ― & a ridiculous lot of panels.

Later ― Hoggs of the Engineers.

Did not go out.

Dined at 6.45. ――

Penned out (Virò drawings ―) 8 to 10.30.

G. gone to Kastrades.

Placed many of the smaller drawings in frames.
