Monday, 15 August 1864

Rose at 6. “Packed[”]. Breakfast at 7 ― & to rail at 7.30. Waterhouse there ― & Mr. Hodgkin. Waterhouse was capital company to Victoria.

I ― home by 11 ― train one hour late.

Found the Portuguese new-papering the upstairs room ― & making a row. Robinson moving out. Paid him 13£ for carpet & rug & druggett. Talk with Gush about upper room, & offer £210 for the whole.

Arranged studio ― but dreadfully worried by overhead noise.

Went to Foord’s at 6.30 ― & at 7 to D. Wyatts.


Most pleasant evening.

Home by 11.30. Letter from C.F.

Tennyson’s new vol.[1]
