Windier & not so cold. also ― some sun.
Wrote but a little. Sent T. Cooper to Drummonds with £76.13 of checks ― or cheques. Arranged 30 drawers of Greek drawings ― & found those Turin sketches I had been looking after ever so long. At 2 went to Day’s & found to my great disgust that they are printing only one drawing as yet, & 250 only of that: ― the No. 10. And with a cold gray tint ― which happily I stopped. But I came away in a great rage ― for when can I hope the Book will be out at this rate? ― Came home & wrote an angry note to them. ― Walked to Eaton Place & back, ― home by 5. ― Just after I came, & the wind having risen, comes down a tremendous storm of rain & hail. ―
At 6.15 ― to 77. Bloomsbury St. A good bit of waiting for the Woodthorpes, ―; poor Mrs. Wyatt is evidently sad about poor Constance.
The dinner was, as always there ― happy. Not good ― quâ cookery, but hearty & pleasant. ―
Afterwards ― singing &c. Teddy is vastly queer & tiresome: Mrs. W. is amiable ― ἀλλὰ ἐνόκλιτος.
Came away at 11.30. home by 12.
Would I were out of this Subscription bother!! ――
 But annoying (Nina thinks, but is not sure).
