Very fine ever. Penned before breakfast, & all day more or less.

Letter from Mr. Alfred Morrison who is coming again.

At 3.30 ― came Mr. Lytton-Bulwer, Mrs. & Miss D° & a pleasant Mr. Green ― who turned out to be Mr. Green of Ditcham!!!!

Also Miss Caroline Napier, Margaret & Rachel Bruce, & Bruce’s sister. later, as I was going out, 6.30 ― Alfred Drummond, ― & ― as I gound at 11.30 ― later still ― Arthur & Lady Augusta Stanley ―― to my very great sorrow. At Mrs. Martineau,


The dinner was pleasant, tho’ it is a hard & laborious matter to bear up against the depressing silence of the M. Family.

Walked home with brother Bob.
