Wednesday, 26 October 1864

Very dark at times ― but dry.

Chevalier Dos Santos,
Miss Julia Goldsmid,
Mrs. Naylor,
Evelyn Baring,
Mrs. Henry Baring,
Mrs. Prescott
A. Glennie ―

These were among the interruptions of the day. As for me, when able, ― I worked at dividing & selecting drawings ― & making 4 little sketches of Carlo ― Miss Louis’s dog, ― for her. Did not go out.

At 7.30, came Glennie & J. Uwins ―


and a most pleasant evening it was: “vastly ― vastly” so. It was nearly 12 before they went. Glennie is little altered, tho’ he must be 64 or 65: but Giacomo Uwins has a white beard.

“O come passano i dì ― felici!”
