Finer ― dark at times.

Wrote to

Mrs. Clive, Mrs. Musters, & T. Fairbairn,

telling them I had resolved to stick to my original prices for the 4 pictures ― Cedars 735£ ― Masada 525£ ― Beirut 315£ [Pentedattilo] 105£[.]

Finished the Vignette.

Baring called ― & G. Cartwright: He is indeed much altered ― & no wonder. ―

4 more subscribers ― (125) ― to day.

At 4 ― called on poor A. Peel. out  ―& also Major Peel.

Walked till 6. ― then wrote envelopes for what dearest Ann called ― “a fresh attack!”

My memory of her last hours fades not at all.

Went to Barings. Mrs. T.G. Baring had a bad cold, but I shewed some drawings to her & Sissy.


Evening thoroughly pleasant.

Home by 11.30
