Friday, 16 September 1864

Rainy & dark morning ― afternoon fine.

As might be expected ― a day uneasy. Could not paint.

Passed the morning in arranging drawings in the 4th Cabinet.

At 4 ― walked straight to Holloway ― a queer dreamy duty, ――: Walking on the same side of the road as the house ― it seems all pulled down ― as there is only a row of shops to be seen: but on the other side, you see the upper part is still existing ― only divided into three, the inside windows of the spare; & mother’s room, being cut in half ― quâ stair lights. So ―


So much for Bowman’s Lodge!

Walked back to the Angel, & in a Nomnibus home by 7.
