X4

Perfectly lovely ― fresh bright day ― but not cold ―― all through.

Worked from 9 to 4 ― (& half an hour before breakfast) ― quite hard.

No post today.

Finished Trevelyan’s “Competition Wallah.” At 4 ― walked “into the town” ― (posting a letter for Mrs. Prescott,) ― & up the hill nearly to Villa Franche [sic]. ―

Returned at 6.30 ― & dined at 7. Heard G. read afterwards ― & penned out (!!!!!) a whole drawing ― (Ponte Maddalena ―) tho’ with a poor & trying light.

Bed at 10.

―――――

5th day of 240 Tyrants ― ochred the remaining 73 ― & began to go over these last a second time.
Got through 10 ― 2nd process.
