Thursday, 12 March 1863

Cloudy ― & cloudier ― & at 2 ― rain & wind: & 4: thunder & lightning & wind & darkness.

A gloomy day externally. ― And internally ― & great shakes. For though I worked at my lampblack=penned=out=future=photographs  I made it worse rather than better, & towards 3 or 4 P.M. gave it up.

Lord Seymour came ――― o! most futile ― unless indeed he be an overwhelming genius. ― And ― in storms of same ―

Sir P. Calhoun Colquhoun ― & Sir H.J. Woolff ― which their visit was quaint.

Sir P.C. asked me to dine at the casino!!!! ― O Lord!

G.’s account fo their houseold is queer enough. The wind was awful at 5 ― of course the illuminations are put off sine die.

Did not go out. Dined at 7. reading Shelley’s memorials ―. ―
