Wednesday, 16 March 1864

Fine ― & very warm, till 4 or 5, when it became cloudy, & appeared to “promise” storms.

At 9 ― came Sir H.J. Storks & E. Baring, ― later Mrs. De Vere & Mrs. Garrett, (a pleasant nice woman, who spoke much of Lady Canning,) then De Vere, & latest Madme Cazotti & Mlle Cazotti, & Madme Viviani ― all very nice women.

After that ― from 3 to 6 ― packed up the pictures ― the Argostoli still unfinished, the Florence only half way done.

Gloomy at 6 ― but I mooned out: Fort Abraham falls.

Dined at 7.30 ― & penned out (Zante drawings ―) till 10[.]

The Viviani plays divinely.

Also wrote notes to
S.W. Clowes
S. Cave
A. Drummond
Mrs. Mildmay
& Ridley.
