Saturday, 11 July 1863

Same fine warm weather. Rose at 5.20 ― & penned out till 8. ― No letters. ―

Penned & colored all day at intervals ― no one calling.

Made up 3 Dozen Mounts of the 6. Island drawings.

As I was packing to go ― at 4 ― came Harrie & Lady Farquhar, who to my surprise took off the “Pisa.” It is very kindly of H.F. to have told his mother about the drawings.

Came to Railway, & at 5.35 ― off ― & by 6 ― was slowly walking to Clarence.

(Capt. Stillman of the 6th in the Rail Carriage.)

Mr. Spring Rice ― (Stephen) took gt. care of me ― & it was the longest walk indeed I have yet made. 3 glasses of sherry & some biscuit restored me. Talk of AT who it seems is very unwell: & of other matters.

Beautiful room ― dress: dinner ― a 3rd of a dinner as 2 parties are elsewhere


but may come later.

Bed 10.30[.]
