Tuesday, 20 October 1863

Dry ― but dark at times.

Finished No. 13 ― the 20th Lithograph, & began the vignette.

Thus ― since I began on the 1st Septr. I have done the whole 20 in 50 days, ― subtracting 1 dark day ― 1 ― (Mr. Cockerells funeral.) 1 at Hackwood ― & 7 Sundays ― the Twenty have taken 2 days each. ―

Walked to May Fair & Piccadilly.

Dined at 61. Eaton Place.


Pleasant. Adml. R.’s “Scotch Sermons” are divine. What odd links there are ― Mrs. R.’s Aunt adopted “Countess Kataski” when a girl: & Adml. R.’s sister uncle married Hon. A. Cavendish’s Aunt Uncle.


[How was Charles Buller’s mother Mrs. R.’s Aunt? I think she was a Kirkpatrick ― as Lady Lowry,][1]
