Rose at 6. ― or 6.15 ― & penned out till 8.
No one came all day ― except Clowes & Okeover. & later, Capt. Wade-Browne ― who bought another drawing. Mainly I penned out at intervals ― but very wearily. There was a vast breakfast given by Lady Anne Beckett wh. filled the place with carriages & noise.
At 7 ― I walked out nearly up to the top of Portland Place: very giddy as yet.
Passed the house of dear old Col. & Mrs. Leake: ― sad.
Returned before 8.
Dined ― Mrs. Cooper cooks nicely.
Afterwards ― wrote a little.
Bed at 10 ― or 10.20.
