Wednesday, 20 January 1864

Less cold: ― ἂς εὐχαριστούμεν τὸν Θεόν,[1] but darky, & sunless.

Worked on & off & on at the 5. W.C. drawings.

One letter from T. Cooper, containing one from Mr. Roper Maynard ― & his subscription: & Jones’s bill.

Did not go out.

The 2 cases with books & the Turin ˇ[&c. &c.] came.

At 6.30 came ―


Both really pleasant fellows ― though Wright is the liveliest & “cleverest.” Showed drawings till 10.30.

Col. Wynne [R.I.] has written today ― & comes out on Monday.

Vido & Fort Abraham are to be destroyed. The rest uncertain.
