Friday, 2 September 1864

Cloudy ― & often wet.

A bad day ― εῖς πολλοῦς τρόπους.[1]

Letters from Mrs. Clive, Augusta Bethell, & C.F. Later from F.L. ― Mrs. F. being less well.

Worked ― but vey capriciously, at the V. Gordianorum. ―

At 6 ― ordered a piano ― for hire: subscribed for 2 months to a library & walked to F.L.’s. Mrs. F.L. is not much better, I regret to say.

Great pain seized my throat about 4 ― or 5 ― & I wrote to say I could not come to Hackwood tomorrow as I had intended. It is hardly better, & at times worse ― tonight.

A very bad  night ― first pain & then Διαρρέα[2] ―

[1] In many ways (NB).

[2] Diarrhea.
