Sunday, 21 August 1964

Took medicine. Too ill to go out. Sent Thomas with notes to C.F. & Lady W. Great thunder-storm at noon.

Penned out, & wrote up some days of journal in May & June.

In the afternoon it cleared up ― & I went on until I had penned out the very last of the Cretan tour ―― 196 drawings ― & a vast number of small bits. So now there is only to color the 4 Dozn. for remaining moments. I tried some drawing on wood also. ― At 5 ― Wade-Browne came ― & staid till near 7. I read the rest of Enoch Arden to him.

Dined alone ― but am less dreadfully depressed than χθὲς.
