Saturday, 17 September 1864

Rose at 7. Fine.

A letter from T. Fairbairn ― they are going off to Rome, & ask me there ˇ[for] tomorrow: all things duly weighed I resolve to go. ―

So I painted a good bit of Sir W. James’s picture, & afterwards of the Jánina somewhat ―― but even now I really half despair of that picture.

Then I wrote to Gussie, Ellen, Mrs. Wyatt ― & F.L.

At 4 ― went to Victoria Station, & at 4.55 ― off ― at Petworth by 6.50. Fairbairns Brougham waiting. Restive horse ― so, walked partly. All very kind & pleasant[.]


Daddy has hurt his leg badly. Evening very cheery & pleasant.

Bed at 11.30[.]
