Friday, 3 July 1863

Warm & bright all day.

Rose at 5. Penned out or wrote till 8.

Letter from Mrs. Clive.

Penned out till 12 ― or 2 ― then, having finished all the [26 Paxõ][1] drawings, coloured till I went out, at intervals. Came Col. Temple-West [&]

2 Ladies. ― [he pleasant][2] enough & paid for his drawing[.]

Later, Mrs. Garney & 2 friends, most fearfully tiresome.

And later, darling kind Mrs. Decie.

Went out at 6.30 ― bought Photograph book ― new brushes &c. &c.

& dined at the blue post.

Home by 9.30 & penned out Sta. Maura [illegible].

Bed at 10.30[.]
