Rose late. Always very warm weather.

Cooper’s little girl still lives on.

F. Lushington called ― Mrs. Beadon & Elizabeth & Col. Cockburn ― & C. Wynne & 3 Miss Lestrange, no buyers. ― Much loss of time ――

Worked at the Butrinto ― but by no means cheerily. At 5.30 or 6 came C. Fortescue, asking me to dine with him at the Blue-posts: very amiable ― & very unlucky that I cannot.

At 7.15 to G. Middleton’s, ― out of humour that I cannot dine with C.F., & foreboding a boring evening ― wh. did but so turn out;


Mrs. M. is an amiable woman, tho’ alquanto heavy. Cambridge possesses the Leake Coins. Except George M. None of that family are worthy to speak of him.

Home by 11.
