XXX. Ἐξ αἱτίας του[1] ――――――.

A sad day. And the first I have lost the morning hours of ― not rising till 7.

Penned & coloured little all day ― sleeping more. Weary & troubled as to staying or going from town.

No one came ― “studio gazing.” ―

C. Fortescue called & sate a time.

Later ― the Robinsons & Sir G. Buller ― cards & a note.

At 7. To W. Nevill’s ― 65 Russell Sqre.


Miss (Jane) Dridge ― & Mary Jourdain were there bu not dining.

Home in a cab by 10.15.

Same fine weather.


[1] Because of (NB).
