Not cold ― gray ― dry: darky.

No end of letters all day. ―

Wrote many notes. ― & a long letter to Mrs. Prescott.

At 1.30 went out & cabbed to 1. Trafalgar Sqre. Mrs. Coombe & Miss Olive ― (Javanese to wit.) Staid till 3.30 & cab back home. Lord G. Quin came ― a kindly friendly man. Wrote several answers to various folk, & rushed out again ― calling ― Mrs. Cocks ― (out) & Mrs. Chapman ― with whom sate a good bit.

Walked home . More notes to answer! ― To dinner at Dorchester House ―


After dinner ― which was pleasant enough ― botanical talk: & then, in drawing room, showed Lithographs. But there is always something worn & falsetto about Lindsays. I fancy it is the best of these ―― & Lord L. of the whole lot. We had the hall gaslit afterwards ― but there is somewhat not happy somewhere. ―

Home by 11.30.
