Wednesday, 21 September 1864

Fine all day ―

Certainly ― 3 more beautiful months never were.

Rose at 6. Wrote to Sarah ― Ellen ― & others: ― later, having sent T. Cooper to Drummond’s for 20£ ― forwarded £15. Thereof to Mrs. F. Street.

Painted pretty hard at the Jánina from 9.30 ― to 3.30.

At 4. Called at the Slingsby Bethell’s, & Thomas Hankeys ― out ― both.

Then to 37. Tavistock Place: but having eaten “crust” for lunch, was not what I might have been quâ health.


Afterwards sung & played ― passed the evening very happily. Ἐπερπάτησα ‘ς τὴν οἰκίαν κατὰ τὰς ἓνδεκα.[1]


[1] Walked home around eleven o’clock (NB).
