Friday, 21 October 1864

Fine ― ever. Rose latish. And all day long were interruptions ― Vincent & one of the Twin Lushingtons, ― S.W. Clowes & Mr. Okeover, ― Dickenson & a lot of men, who put up the 5th Cabinet, & 2 bits of side bookcases from 11 to 5. E. Baring & Straham, & Mrs. Bergmann, whom I could not see ― I am sorry to say. Did not go out at all.

At 7.15 ― came Godfrey L. ― who, I thought had been here today, ― but it was Vernon who came with Vincent. Before he went came E. Baring & G. Straham. But the dinner was woefully postponed, ― & when it came, (tho’ not bad,) was full of lapses & vacua.


All today I have thought of sending things to Malta ― & being there 2 or 3 months. But now, I opine quite the contrary. Menton or Eastward of that, or [Paro], or Gibraltar.
