Wednesday, 28 September 1864

Did little but fuss ― & arrange paper for mounts, till at 4.30 ― Fairbairn really came, & paid £157.10 for the Joannina, with which he was greatly pleased. This is a thund’ring big pleasure.

At 5.-5.30 ― walked to Foord’s, to order Matters about mounts &c. &c. &c. Back by 7 ― & at 7.45 ― E. Drummond came. We had a really pleasant evening, ― 2 soles, cutlets, & Lady Goldsmid’s Hare being the dinner ― beside an apple pie.

Afterwards, we looked at Cretan sketches, & so on ― till 12.
