Saturday, 19 November 1864

Rain all night ― but day bright & lovely all through.

Little I see of the front & blue sea ― as I work at the back, but however I come to look at it it is certainly very delightful.

Rose at 7 ― & worked from 7.45 to 8.30.


At 9.30, worked again, 2nd process ― till 3.30. ―

At 4 walked to Lady Duncan’s, & sate with her & poor Anna ― both unwell: ―

Home by 6 ― & dined. I cannot well pen out, as I have no table, nor lamps.

I began fires yesterday ― in the evening: but do not want them by day yet.

Heard George read: he has improved a good deal.

8th day of 240 Tyrants.
Got through 16 2nd process ― in all, 56[.]
