Saturday, 13 August 1864

Rose at 5.30 ― those lovely trees! ―― penned out till 7. “Packed.” Breakfast. Afterwards looked at more drawings, & walked with Mrs. Tipping & John T. ― latterly to Sundridge church. At 11 ― left these pleasant places & people, & came in the family Omnibus to Sevenoaks with Miss Blake & Mr. Waterhouse. At the Junction ― change: Lord De Tabley in carriage. Left them at Beckenham. Washed there, & lunched till 1. Rail on to Norwood Junction, & waiting there till the Train came from East Croydon. Ditto again there, for the train to Lewes. Tired & bored by crowding & waiting. At Lewes by 4.15. The Hunts out. ―




Bed at 10.
