Wednesday, 31 August 1864

Rain & cloud till 2 or 3 ― then sun & clear.

Very pleasant letter from Lucy Francillon. ― one from Ellen also ― Henry is ill & breaking.

from Gussie Bethell also & others.

Worked all day ― at Sir W.J.’s Campagna, 3rd day ― & rather better.

Sir H.J. Storks came: he goes to Malta, & on the 14th Oct. if not earlier. Strahan & Baring go as A.D.C.’s & John Peel as Milry Secry.

Dined at home ― not going out at all. ―

[Transcribed by Marco Graziosi from Houghton Library, Harvard University, MS Eng. 797.3. Image.]
