Wet ― all day pretty well ―at least till 5.

Rose at 5 ― & instantly began colouring the last 2 Dozen of Cretan drawings ― which I worked at terrifically all day ― & actually finished the last at 6. P.M. ― 75 in one Dozen ― & 42 in the other!! ― I can hardly believe all are done! ― Just as I was completing the very last, Cecil Lane! Came ― & staid till 7.15. Good fellow. ―

Eh! the days that are no more!

Dined alone. Mrs. Cooper & the little Girl have gone to the Country, but T.C. works very well.

Afterwards, arranged & packed all the rest of the drawings, & now 4 Dozen are ready for mounting.
