Tuesday, 1 November 1864

Rose early ― getting thro’ much of “last arrangements.”

At 10, (leaving Foord’s men working at my Watercolour screens, ―) went to Carlton Gardens, & saw C.F. in his Dressing room: all serene & merry enough, in a way. Came to Waterloo Station, & thence to Leatherhead, ― day very cold. Dined with poor Ellen, who is always Kind; ― & left her at 2. (I should have gone to Mrs. Howard’s, but Lord Bristol died yesterday.) Back to London, & bought various things till 5, & then had some supper: & bed at 10, awfully tired.
