Tuesday, 24 March 1863

Fine, but cloudy ― & showery all about the hills, not here ― soft & warm. I have a fire at breakfast ― & one also lighted in the “studio” ― but I let both out before 10: then light my sitting-room fine before dinner, & that foes out also before 9.

“Finished” L. Rawson’s Philæ: ― but then, I could do no more oil ― &, as is often the case with me ― I began to distaccare[1] & pack up all things: ―drawing S. Salvador ― (ill-naturedly cloudy ―) out of the window at times.

One Capt. Ware Brown came: a widely travelled & intelligent man ―― & staid a time & half a time. ―

Later ― at 6 ― I walked out ― a shor round. Very cloudy.

Home by 7.15. & dinner at 7.30.

Talk of going to Suli ― with G. Kokali.

Afterwards ― penned out till 11.30 ――

G.K. long since having written & gone to bed. ―

What a quiet pleasant house this is now a days!! ―
