Friday, 18 November 1864

A deep-red bright Sunrise ― soon clouding, cloudy, & gleamy all the early part of the day ― cloudier after 12 ― & rain at 4 ― pouring rain from 5: ― at 9 ― there seems less.

Woke ― “indigestible.” X

Yet worked hard at the drawings till 4.30.

Letters from
Cecil Lane in an Envellope [sic] of T. Cooper’s
Daddy Hunt ――
Phillipps of the 6th

All these bringing back many memories.

From 5 ― my hours were sad, till I instituted a fire.

Dinner at 6.15 & afterwards, penned out till 9.15.

G. staved off reading ― & went to bed.

Ditto his master at 9.30.


7th day od 240 Tyrants
Got through 17 of 2nd process ― 40 in all.
