Thursday, 24 December 1863

Fine, & milder. A good many letters ― 2 payments.

Wrote several answers: ― wrote to Miss Gush, to Prince, ― & others. Went to days before 12 ― & paid his 559.15.6. To Bickers, & bought a copy of the Parrots to give Mrs. Digby Wyatt. To Maclean’s, who fixes the price of the “[Citadel]” at 3/6: but he is a soapy oombuggy man. ― Called to see Miss Yates ― but she couldn’t see me. Home ― & wrote again till 3.30 ― when I walked to Brompton.

Fanny Coombe seems to me sadly unwell


Poor Fanny!

The Evening passed pleasantly.

Percy walked with me to Piccadilly.

Found letters ― (home by 10) one, by order of H.R.H. the Prince of Wales ― very nice.
