XX alas. ―
Letter from Marseilles ― the Trunk is said to be expedie!
Cab to city ― but it has not yet been heard of.
Returned at 11.30 ― & arranged Crete drawings all the afternoon.
J. Simeon, C. Wynne, & joyous Wade-Browne called; the latter is a nice good downright boy.
At 4.30 ― or 5 ― went out, & called on AT & Woolner ― out: & Wynnes. ― Saw & spoke to Bulwer of Cerigo ― days of 1863! ― called on Lady Coltman, who would sit in a draught. Duckworths ― out.
To Sir John’s Lodge at 7.30.
All pleasant. The Herr Professor played divinely on the Violin. I walked with him to Portland Pl. ― & was home by 11.
