Rose at 6.45 ― arranged for painting &c. ― till 8.

Nice letter from Taylor ― very. He encloses Beale’s bill ― & his own ― & a cheque for 6£ over & above his own account paid. The 7 cases were shipped by the “Crimœan” ― 18th or 20th. ― Would I had left all my things there! ―― Letter also from Gussie Bethell, asking me there on Saturday; & from F.L. ― whose wife is not so well.

Worked ― mainly ― all day ― tho’ not always successfully ― at the Campagna of Sir S. James (2nd day.)

At 5. went out, to various places ― Robersons, Lee’s ― &c. &c.

Dined μοναχῶς at 8 ― penned out old Campagna drawings afterwards ― & now bed at 11.
