Tuesday, 15 November 1864

Stormy cloudy early ― but quite lovely after 11 ― all day ― breezy, but not the least cold. No fires yet, & open windows.

From 9 to 3.30 worked very hard ―: the system of doing many drawings at once keeps a man alive anyhow.

At 4 ― walked out ―― bright & very blowy: ― up horrid lanes to Lady Duncan’s ― I fear she & Anna lead a dreary hard life.

Back by 6.30 & dined. Ἔπειτα[1] ― wrote to Mrs. Prescott. G. has put on a blue shade to the lamp.

At 9.30 ― bed.


4th day of 240 drawings. 80 ― ˇ[blue, pink &] ochred. ― the 2nd 73 ― pink & blued.

[1] Then.
