Monday, 14 December 1863

Foggy early ― but afterwards, clear & fine all day.

A few ― 10 or so ― letters.

At 11.30. Florence Bethell came ― with 2 Miss Edwards ― & looked at all the Egyptian drawings till 1. ―

At 2.30 ― cab to Day’s ― & gave him all the lists of Subscriber names ― now in all 370.

Dickenson also came today ― to take things for packing for Corfu.

After leaving Day’s I called at Woolffs ― Wade-Browne, ― T. Hamilton’s, & the Chancellors: walking a bit with Dunn Gardner whom I met: a good nice fellow. I called also ― seeing the house open ― at Miss Yates’s ― where I heard, from the Albanian servt., that Major Reynolds is very ill. Returned to write no end of notes notes notes ― till 6.30.

To 61. Eaton Place.


The white dog is lost. ἀς εὐχαριστοῦμεν τὸν Θεόν.[1]

Evening ― ἔτζι κ’ἔτζι pleasant.

Raw cold damp night.
