Fine ― but with showers.

Polished off the remaining letters: packed, secreted & simplified rooms. Young Underhill came ― he is an attentive & careful youth, & worth the trouble of teaching.

At 2.30. went to Drummon’s, where I drew out 10£ ― & to Mcleans: the ancient McLean ― jocose & hearty: & pleased at publishing my one print. ― Then ― (rain, & cab,) to Days ― where were arrangements for publishing ― & overseeing of title writing. Walked ― at 4.30 to Piccadilly ― changing cold ― very. Hair cut. ― Home.

Letter from Miss Dennett ― very nice.

7.30 ― to Portland Place.


Which had been pleasant, had not the fire gone out, whereby I grew cold ― & was only partially restored by a smoking room.

Poor A. Peel!

Walked home by 11.30.

Found letters from C. Fortescue: ― & Craven (from Corfû) the latter very sad & weary.

13 subscribers today ― which are at 159.
