Very fine.

4 subscribers ― 129.

Worked tolerably all day ― at the odd long Citadel Lithograph.

Vernon Lushington called & brought the small £10.10.0 Janina.

S.W. Clowes called later.

Did not go out.

At 7. To Digby Wyatts ―


Evening & dinner all delightful. But the little green bird is dead. ― J. Fergusson walked to Regent St. μαζὺ μου.[1] Home by 11.30[.]

Found Ansted’s book on the 7. Islands.[2]



[1] With me (ΝΒ).

[2] Ansted, David Thomas. The Ionian Islands in the Year 1863. London: Wm. H. Allen & Co., 1863. The book mentions Lear on pp. 47-8: “… This course was suggested to me by Mr. Lear, an artist, whose accurate and conscientious pictures of Corfu are well known, and who, fortunately for me, very kindly undertook to accompany me in my first drive.”
