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.
