Lovely ― but not clear.
Finished “Damascus” for Alfred Drummond, & “Athens” for Sibilla Mildmay.
Capt. Stocker R.A. came.
At 2. went out to above the Parguenote village, & drew, there, & nearer Manducchio till 5.20.
At home found several letters ― Drummond’s had received my £50.4.0. T. Cooper writes ― & Ellen, & several others.
Dined at De Vere’s. ―
Came home at 11 ― & wrote to Ellen & for an hour or two.
