Thursday, 17 November 1864

Perfectly bright & beautiful, but colder.

Rose before 7, & worked an hour nearly before breakfast. The Daily Telegraph ― having missed yesterday, Wednesday representing Sunday here, quâ posting, ― comes again.

At 3 I was so cold & miserable, I gave it up, & walked out, (meeting Dr. Deakin & Mr. Lyon ― whom I should not have known.[)] ―

A long walk to Villa Franca ―: pretty nook of town & harbour. ― Walked back by 6.15.

Dinner, ― always very nice. Afterwards, penned out, & heard George read ― till 10.


6th day of 240 Tyrants ― (the Tyrants here being 155.)
2nd process ― got through 13-23 in all[.]
