Monday, 21 March 1864

See 2 pages ahead.[1]

Gray & calm all day.

Sent pictures off.

Went to Taylor’s ― to get change for cheque. J.W. Taylor is sad ― he was born here in 1821. ― Old Mr. Ragnanean was ― there, ― & older Mr. Woodhouse ―― how very bad all this!! ―

Came home, & off & on penned out Zante drawings,

At 2, Luigi the Zinkious man came, a fat & worthy soul: ― & so, before 5 ― 4 packages were done up & ready. The Case of pictures ― drawings went to Woodley’s this morning.

At 7.30 to De Veres.


Pleasant, ― at least I was ― for [once] ― enjoyful. And later I sang from In Memoriam &c. Home by 12.

Found a letter from T. Cooper ― announcing 6 having been sent ― but none are come! Pleasant.
