Tuesday, 13 September 1864

Fine ― but a “dies non.” ― Rose at 7.

Worked hard all day, carrying down books &c., & putting them in the bookcases which were finally put up by 2 P.M.

Got the last things down by 6.15.

Had a bath & was somewhat refreshed, tho’ awfully tired. At 7 to 40 Norfolk Terrance.


Very pleasant.

Walked home by 10.45.

2. anecdotes of clean Turk ― told by Mr. Mitford. Fine swell Peterburgh lady ―

Mis vous savez Mme. que nous autres sommes aussi ^[tellement] en arrière!

Non Madame ― et vous?
