Friday, 23 September 1864

We rise at 6.30. We prepare colors, & painting & answer some notes. Breakfast. Letter from Sarah ― a good woman thro’ a long & trying life.

Worked at the Jánina ― improvingly ― tho’ it never seems to come nearer finish.

Dickenson came ― about the Betterhanger frame, & the blinds are being put up ― & we are altogether altogethery. Later ― Sir H.J. Storks came: one may talk now of his going to Malta.

Went out at 6 to buy a Lamp ― for £3.10.

Dined at home μοναχῶς.

The Piano is a comfort.
