Friday, 2 December 1864


Insane & miserable night. Gnats ― & nerves, & indigestion. Day lovely.

Rose, ὅμως,[1] at 7. Very nice letter from Mrs. G. Clive[.] Calls ― Deakin, & Mannerly Sutton.

Worked hard all day ― beginning in complete despair but ending better.

Day, cloudy early ― & I thought the weather was broken up but it became as bright as ever: & colder.

Called on Mrs. Saltmarshe, & on the 2 Cortazzi: then shoppingly bought ― hat for G., & a flask for myself.

Dined, read life of Lockhart ― kindly sent me by Mr. Lyon.

And penned out more than half of a large drawing of Villefranche till 10. I don’t like the idea of a long 3 or 4 or 5 week’s journey: ― but when, if not now, are the Corniìche drawings to be made?

^[Yesterday] 17 & 18th day ^[(today)] of the 240 Tyrants.

A ―    3}            Third Process.
B         6}
C         2}
D         2}

[1] However.
