Friday, 13 November 1863

Very cold & fine all day.

Wrote out letterpress. F.L. came. & then Julian Goldsmid, who worked at altering Letterpress till 1 ― & then went.

I wrote till 3.30 ― then walked to Barings & H. Farquhar’s ― all out. ―

Then ― at 5 ― to Digby Wyatts, where Mrs. W. made me stay to dine. There is certainly something of life ― intelligence, & sweetness about her “very superior.” ― Digby & his Parrot also are unique. There were 2 cousins there ― pleasant nice people ― & Mrs. N. extremely pretty.


Afterwards sang ― & came home in a cab. ―
