Saturday, 24 October 1863

Work is over now.

A foggy but not unpleasant day. Clowes & [his] Miss Cavendish came. she is far prettier than the Photograph ― & has the sweetest voice: & is altogether of a high-bred manner ˇ[mixed] with perfect simpleness: in fact ― a real duck.

Lawson also came.

I arranged drawings ― & wrote lots of Envelopes.

Walked to Baring’s & called there.

Dined at 6.30.

Wrote envelopes ― to the tune of 330! ― What labour! ― & even yet the subscribers are only up to 138.

I began fires to day.
