Saturday, 25 June 1864

The usual “penning out” ― Cretan sketches. Sent T. Cooper, who is recovering fast ― to the city about my Trunk ― it has not come, & they say “next week.” Captn. & Mrs. Jameson called. At 3 ― came to Waterloo Station. ― poor W. Nevill was there, going 2nd Class. ― alas.

Also, Colonel Hornby, & Windham.

Travelled alone ― barring a marvelous Baby=Paton.

At Basingstoke, carriage with Gussie, & Florence Bethell poor woman ―― what is her life! ― But the L.C. don’t come ― acause of the Cabinet sitting.

Walk with Wally in the woods ―.


Afterwards ― a good fire ― for it is cold here: ― & I sang a good deal.
