Friday, 7 October 1864

Rose at 7. A wonderfully lovely day all thro’ ― clear ― & not so cold.

Letter from F.L.

Cab to Rail at 8.30 ― & to Leatherhead at 10. Walk to Ellens ― & a walk with her to Norbury. The brightness of sky & earth was lovely.

I found that Sarah Ann K. is dead. She died last year of smallpox. Poor sad life! ―――――――――

Dinner at 2. Παραπλὺ πρέπει νὰ τρώγωμεν εδώ.[1]

Left at 5 ― & rail to town from 5.25 ― to 6.20. ―

Cab home by 7.


[1] We must eat very much here (NB).
