Letter from Ellen.
Worked hard ― 8 to 9 ― & 10 to 3.
Then walked, taking G. with me to shew him various homes. Carabacel. &c. &c.: very dirty. Walked on the “marina” from 5 to 6.
6.30 to Mr. Lyon. Good dinner & pleasant evening. Talk of Sussex: how very queer! Dukes, & Poling, the Decoy ― Angmering, [Holince] &c. &c. &c. &c. ―: & especially of the Watkins: Deakin, as a little boy remembers Mr. W. & Mrs. W. as footman & ladies maid at Worksop!
But, o the hs! ―
‘harouse the hair [―] hanimate the hatmosphere.’
14th day of 240 Tyrants ― through 2nd process of 12.
