Rose at 6.30. Very fine ― cold. Breakfast alone ― & to rail at 7.30. Stratford Place by 10. Paid young Underhill £2.10.0 for his work: a good Lad.
John Leech is dead. ―――
Went out to get a hat ― brushes ― Bradshaw &, ― coming back met Sir Henry Storks. Went out again about Drummond’s Circular notes. Returned to pack ― pack ― pack, ― & paper up all things ― till 6. When I am going to the Digby Wyatts’.
The weather has become intensely cold all of a sudden, ― & I feel miserable accordingly.
Somehow ― I was sad sleepy.
At 11. I came away, cab home.
Letter from C.F. who has returned.
