Fine ― but cloudy. Rose before 6 ― & wrote till breakfast. Afterwards, from 9.30, to 5.30, worked pretty constantly at the Jánina ― improving it very much; at 3.30 ― Cecil Lane having come in, he sate with me till 5.30 ― when we walked as far as the Z. Gardens & back.
To 61. Eaton Place to dine.
Very pleasant, but it is too early for fires ― albeit it is really colder then I like. The R.s are kindly thorough-good people. Home by 11.
