Very dark & gray damp foggy ― boo!
Did not go out ― but wrote incessantly all day ― many receipts for cheques sent ― & more asking for others.
Charles Wynne & his new wife came; evidently a sensible woman. ―
At 5.30. Bob Martineau came ― nice good fellow. At 7. to F.L.’s.
Evening unpleasant. Spheres out of order. Gibbs a bore. I sulky. Mrs. Holland the best card.
Altogether ― particularly as the Lamp was in my eyes ― I wished I was Tekel. ―
