Dark & dampish all day: but I did not go out.
Wrote all day long ― making out lists &c. ―
Only Sidney Lane came. ― but that was much.
Darkness came: & it was too late to go out. So I dined at home on cold beef & rice & sherry. ― & read George Sand’s Consuelo, which wonderfully delight me.
Οὓτως ἐτελιώθη, ταύτην τήν ἡμέραν, — ποτέ θα ἒλθωσι ἂλλαι πλέον ἐλευθερικαί;
 And thus this day ended ― when will others, more libertarian, come? (NB)
